“Every individual in my photographs has her own or his own story to tell. But sadly we come from spaces in which most black people never had that opportunity… I’m not [here] to speak for the people, but to share and change the portrayal of black bodies… It’s about time that we bring positive imagery of us in space where we are there, but hardly seen.” —Zanele Muholi
