Quotes

A woman taking a photograph of a woman isn’t just performing a political act; it is also a powerful act of imagination. If each picture taken creates an image of a new reality, then this is one that suggests the exclusion of men. The photograph may allude to masculinity, but both its gaze and subject remain female. If the male gaze is thought to be toxic, the female gaze is a corrective. It is a perfect, virtuous circle, and entirely natural.

Zing Tsjeng’s foreword, p.7

It’s about claiming the spaces, taking back power, owning our voices and our selves and our bodies, without fear of being judged.

Zanele Muholi,  p.11
