Gwanza comes alive


THE popular Gwanza Month of Photography, which is running under the theme 4+ 20 Possibilities, started at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe (NGZ) this week on Thursday.

The exhibition, which is the 10th edition and largest in Zimbabwe, will feature a display of various photographs by local photographers based on unspecified qualities of a promising nature or potential as suggested by the theme.

The creative works on display include those by Nancy Mteki, Nyari Dhliwayo, Anne Mpalume, Grace Musasa, Thabani Maphosa, George Sena, Thomas Tsama and Believe Nyakudjara.

“The characters or subjects photographed, the inspiration that the photographers had, the environments the subjects were shot in and the aura the images carry are just but a tip of the iceberg of the many possibilities that await us in the world that surrounds us,” NGZ acting information officer Zvikomborero Mandangu said.

Founded in 2003 by the award-winning internationally acclaimed Zimbabwean photographer Calvin Dondo, Gwanza Arts is a non-for-profit organisation dedicated to the development and promotion of photography, hosting the biggest annual photography exhibition in Zimbabwe.

Dondo decided to establish Gwanza after realising the need to provide a platform for interaction between local and international photographers.
