Zanele Muholi is one of the most important visual activists working today, and their career includes a breadth of projects documenting and celebrating the lives of South Africa’s black lesbian, gay, trans, queer and intersex communities. Their exhibition at the Tate Modern is the most comprehensive survey of Muholi's work to date.

Our design of the accompanying catalogue presents Muholi's work in a refreshingly unpretentious, affordable and intimate softcover format, with seven newly-commissioned essays and texts reflecting on Muholi's work. Existing as both a photobook and a reader on photographic activism and LGBTQIA+ discourse, Zanele Muholi also incorporates over 150 images within a responsive, playful layout that apprehends each of Muholi's diverse projects on their own terms. An accompanying hardcover slipcased special edition is also available.
