If you weren't aware, World Photography Day has just come and gone. Celebrated globally on 19 August, the day is aimed at inspiring photographers across the world to share a single photo with a simple purpose: to share their world with the world. While we may not have joined in on the celebrations, there is more than enough time until the next World Photography Day to enjoy the wonders of the medium by visiting Joburg's top photo gallery.
The Market Photo Workshop has been at the forefront of educating young photographers and developing their skills since 1989. Founded by highly-acclaimed photographer David Goldblatt, The Market Photo Workshop has provided vital training for photographers from disadvantaged backgrounds who would otherwise not have had access to photographic equipment. Some of the school's most well-known alumni include Zanele Muholi, Jodi Bieber and Lebohang Kganye.
The Photo Workshop Gallery, established in 2005, showcases both the student's work and exhibitions by professional photographers. An additional exhibition space, Gallery 1989, has also been opened since the Workshop made its move across Mary Fitzgerald Square to its current location. Entrance to these galleries is free to the public, so you really have no excuse not to pay them a visit.
Since its inception, The Photo Workshop Gallery has hosted landmark group exhibitions like Short Change (2009), Working the City (2010), Plastic Crowns (2017) and Faces and Phases 11 (2017). They have also hosted photographers including Juan Orrantia, Laurence Bonvin, Musa Nxumalo, Tracy Edser, Samantha Simons, Sabelo Mlangeni and Lebohang Kganye.
This month sees Tshepiso Mabula ka Ndongeni's latest exhibition, titled Ukugrumba move into the gallery. Mabula is a Market Photo Workshop graduate and 2018 Tierney Fellow. Her photography exposes the humanity in oppositional, chaotic or even boring environments. Ukugrumba, which means to “dig up” in isiXhosa, is a body of work motivated by Mabula's family’s trauma as a result of activism in South Africa’s struggle against apartheid. Presenting the stories of unsung heroes and those forgotten by the system, this exhibition is a must-see.
The exhibition opens on Wednesday, 21 August 2019 at 18:00.
There will also be a guided walkabout on Saturday, 24 August 2019 at 11:00.

What Is It?
The ART WEEK project is inspired by similar international models aimed at developing new audiences, and increasing public exposure to contemporary art. ART WEEK is a week-long annual festival comprised of a coordinated programme of events and activations. Programmes include exhibition openings, art and cultural city tours, artists’ talks, public performances and studio visits. Events and activations are hosted by galleries, non-profit arts organisations and institutions (academic and government), artist collectives, as well as various commercial and non-commercial public spaces.
A significant part of the ART WEEK project is the facilitation of events and activations in previously disadvantaged, surrounding areas. This initiative aims to develop more points of contact between community arts organisations, informal initiatives, and the mainstream visual arts industry.
ART WEEK is used to reinforce the existing strengths of the local art scene. It aims to create a more robust community of art producers, consumers and appreciators by acting as a market platform, an information hub and a leisure attraction for locals and tourists. As it becomes more established, it will start to create greater public awareness about art and the art market, and is therefore an initiative to build sustainability of the art market in South Africa
When Is It?
Art Week starts Saturday 1 September 2018 at 16:00
Where Is It?
It will be hosted at various venues and galleries around Joburg.
