The New B&W Photography: Lesedi M.J. Mogale

Lesedi MJ Mogale


We, together with This Is Film and Orms, are hosting The New B&W Photography exhibition tomorrow evening which features Lesedi M.J. Mogale, along side another 9 up and coming photographers.


Like a number of our other featured photographers, Soshanguve-born and bred Lesedi first realized his interest in photography by playing with his phone and photographing everyday things. He has since received a National Diploma in Photography.


For The New Black&White Photography he shot on 35mm film; having recently started using a film camera exclusively. He says, ” I love how film slows down the photographic process compared to digital and forces the eye to be more observant. All the people I photographed are my friends and I always look to nature for inspiration, with this in mind I decided to straight-shoot them in a way I saw they affiliated with nature. The outcome is a visual feast way more enchanting than expected.”
