African Contemporary That Grabs Your Heart

Gregory Maqomo in Exit/Exist

Taking this shot was a real privilege. As the only photographer, I could rush around and really think about getting different angles, I could stand up right in the front of the stage without worrying about who I was blocking and could get close enough to the performers that I could get this kind of shot with a 50 mil prime lens.

Gregory Maqoma moves with a captivating strength and mature masculine grace. The combination of his performance (a fusion of African and contemporary) and the music reaches into your heart and twists a gentle longing for things you’ve never seen.
