Chronicling the contemporary queer experience in her native land, particularly its black lesbian and transgender communities, Zanele Muholi's powerful portraiture feels both intimate and familiar. Muholi focuses on family life and relationships as an antidote to bigotry. "Isibonelo/Evidence" is about saying, " 'I want to be counted in South African history,' " Muholi said in a recent documentary. "Claiming my full citizenship means I have to write that part of history."
