This number of visitors will put the emphasis on one important lesbian project proposed by Zanele Muholi a South African photographer, which features close-up pictures of women. It’s about the difficult condition of being lesbian in South Africa.
These photos are raw and beautiful! I know my readers will enjoy the beauty of these photos as much as I do. The message is even greater. These images will be displayed as a way to express LGBT rights. Not only is there a good cause for these photos, but they are remarkable to look at. I don’t know the struggles for lesbian women in South African, but these photos are amazing and if it can bring light to a dim situation then that is a wonderful thing.
