OF SOUL AND JOY PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT
South Africa 2015
Of Soul and Joy project is a long-term social art initiative undertaken in 2012 by Rubis Mécénat cultural fund in Thokoza, a township located in the southeast of Johannesburg in South Africa, to pass on artistic skills in Photography to a youth growing up in the township.
Since 2012 workshops are initiated at Buhlebuzile Secondary School in Thokoza. Among other photographers - Jabulani Dhalmini SA, Bieke Depoorter B, Cyprien Clément Delmas FR, Kutlwano Moagi SA, Thabiso Sekgala SA,… - I have been involved as a mentor and curator in the project (Free from my happiness, International Photo Festival Ghent 2015). During my last visit to South Africa, Rubis Mécénat assigned me to make photographs of their activity.
