… in this city an exhibition by Mack Magagane

… in this city is a progression of Magagane’s previous series Light Hours which explored urban spaces in the city of Johannesburg from the perspective of inner city rooftops, seen at night. In his new body of work his encounters take a more intimate perspective, of the momentary aspects of ordinary life in Johannesburg. It is here that Magagane captures the brief encounters, transitory instants, fragments of narratives. 
In August 2011, Mack Magagane was selected as the recipient of the 2011/2012 Tierney Fellowship. Magagane joined a growing list of recipients of The Tierney Fellowship at the Market Photo Workshop that comprises Tracy Edser (2008/2009), Simangele Kalisa (2009/2010), and Thabiso Sekgala (2010/2011). Throughout the fellowship Magagane has been mentored by world-renowned photographer Jo Ractliffe.
