Mikhael Subotzky

From David Goldblatt’s arresting portrayal of its political complexities and social contradictions, and the Bang-Bang Club’s searing coverage of its township violence, to Guy Tillim’s portraits of day-to-day life in its cities, South Africa has produced a tremendous body of photographic work. Mikhael Subotzky, an immensely talented Cape Town-based photographer, rightly deserves his place in [...]


There’s been word of mouth about this young gentleman for some time, but it’s only this weekend that he finally introduced himself to us in person. He seemed charming enough to invite him in for some tea with biscuits and lend him a sympathetic ear. But before you know it, he’s taken over the apartment, [...]

In the meantime, the Attacksters are slowly commissioning track by track to different directors, constructing an entire video library to the soundtrack.


No man is an island – go private-public with the incredible Efterklang this month!


In the meantime, over at MagCulture, one of our favourite magazine blogs, a marathon of a different kind is currently taking place in real-time: to celebrate its fifth anniversary, they’re working their way through a pile of new and independent magazines, by the hour. 24 magazines in 24 hours, that is.
