Photoville NYC: Die lewe is nie reg vir my nie - Farren van Wyk

Melkweg Expo presenteert Farren van Wyk en haar project Die lewe is nie reg vir my nie op Photoville in New York City. Farren van Wyk (1993) werd geboren in Salsoneville, Port Elizabeth, een paar kilometer van Schauderville, maar woont sinds haar zesde in Nederland. Ze bestudeert de bendecultuur van Schauderville sinds 2016 van binnenuit. Ze ontmoette mannen die hun identiteit vormden terwijl ze deel uitmaakten van een bende en die soms ook vreedzaam uit de groep stapten. Van Wyk ging meermaals terug naar Schauderville om te kijken hoe hun leven zich ontwikkelde terwijl het aantal bende gerelateerde misdaden steeds toenam. Ze toont de positieve en meer humane kant van een gemeenschap die steeds als agressief en gevaarlijk gestereotypeerd wordt en waar bendeoorlogen deel uitmaken van het dagelijks leven.

Johny Pitts - Afropean: Travels in Black Europe

In Afropean writer and photographer journalist Johny Pitts (Sheffield, UK) examines the life of black communities, traveling across Europe. In search of the "Afropean" identity he went across the continent traveling from London to Paris, via Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stockholm, Moscow, Rome, Marseille, Madrid and Lisbon sketching an underexposed story about the continent in words and images. He traveled to Amsterdam to hear from The Black Archives about Hermina and Otto Huiswoud, fighters against colonialism and for black communism. He documented Cova Da Moura, the Cape Verdean Favela on the outskirts of Lisbon with its own underground economy and visited the Clichy Sous Bois district in Paris, where uprisings erupted in 2005 following the deaths of Bouna and Zyed, two boys who died after a chase hidden from the police.
