“The inspiration was from the everyday experiences of walking in Joburg from home to the studio. This iconic city allows you the decency to walk everywhere, it gives you the privilege to walk 40 minutes from home, to work, to school, or anywhere else; every single day. It is an experience to be enjoyed, by the everyday woman, a femme, who does not typically get to enjoy raving about the beauty of Johannesburg. It contradicts the reality of navigating within misogynoir; a dangerous space filled with obstacles, sexist roadblocks and patriarchal potholes. This body of work depicts voyeurism and the male gaze expressed through portraiture and text.” – Lebogang Mabusela
