18 Sep Artist Profile: Leon Krige
Leon Krige’s image, East Fog is the title image to this year’s FNB Joburg Art Fair. For the past 3 and a half years, Krige has been photographing Johannesburg from different rooftops around the city, explaining that new vantage points are necessary for new views. This is obviously literal, but a figurative concern for Krige too, who views the city as a space of change, transition and tension; a place commonly associated with fear rather than beauty.
