Zulu Kids
Project info

In this project, Namsa explores the idea of the construction and deconstruction of the human body. Her work is also a reflection of how to represent the invisible through the photographic medium. Namsa was inspired by anti-apartheid movements and by the impact of these movements on the contemporary South African society. In this series Namsa wants to show the re-appropriation of a cultural and social identity of black people after the years of apartheid. Zulu kids’ gestures (fist, thumb up or holding a lance) and symbolic actions (burning the ethnic group passport) are the expression of this new generation’s will to build their future and find their place in a contradictory society like the one of South Africa, where the Western world and the African world are trying to coexist.
