Hail the Dark Lioness: Zanele Muholi

Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness features over ninety of Muholi's evocative self-portraits, each image drafted from material props in Muholi's immediate environment. These portraits reflect the journey, self-image, and possibilities of a black woman in today's global society. With more than twenty written contributions from curators, poets, and authors, alongside luxurious tritone reproductions of Muholi's images, this title is as much a manifesto of resistance as it is an autobiographical, artistic statement.
