Santu Mofokeng: Stories 1 Train Church

28,00

Over the course of a few weeks in 1986, aboard the crowded and precarious Soweto-Johannesburg train he took to and from his job as a darkroom printer, Santu Mofokeng photographed a ritual he witnessed daily. His fellow commuters, working-class residents from the surrounding townships, would spontaneously begin to sing. Bible-wielding preachers would sermonize, prayers would be uttered, and murmurs would gradually build into a raucous chorus replete with clapping, bell-ringing, dancing, and improvised drums. “These pictures capture two of the most significant features of South African life,” Mofokeng says, “the experience of commuting (migrancy) and the pervasiveness of spirituality.”
