Artist talk: Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa

© Stanley Wolukau Wanambwa, One Wall a Web

British photographer and writer Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa lived and worked in the US for the past six years. His new book One Wall A Web reflects his own experiences of a country torn apart by racial, economic and political contradictions. His photos are placed next to archive press photos, while text fragments by Breitbart and Donald Trump are interwoven with verses by the feminist poet Muriel Rukeyser and the late Allen Ginsberg. One Wall A Web won the Aperture First PhotoBook Award in November 2018.

Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa has contributed essays to monographs and catalogs by Vanessa Winship, Rosalind Fox Solomon and Paul Graham. He wrote for Aperture and Foam Magazine, and from 2011 to 2017 he ran The Great Leap Sideways, an online gallery space dedicated to the presentation of contemporary photography. He is a lecturer at Purchase College, State University of New York.

Artist talk organized by The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and FOMU, with the support of the Belgian Platform for Photobooks.
