Biography

Lindokuhle Sobekwa (b 1995) was born in Katlehong, Johannesburg. He came to photography in 2012 through his participation in the Of Soul and Joy Project, an educational programme run in Thokoza, a township in the southeast of Johannesburg. He studied with Bieke Depoorter, Cyprien Clément-Delmas, Thabiso Sekgala, Tjorven Bruyneel and Kutlwano Moagi. The project also supported his completion of the foundation course at the Market Photo Workshop in 2015. In 2017, Sobekwa was selected by the Magnum Foundation for Photography and Social Justice to develop the project I carry Her photo with Me, about the disappearance of his sister, Ziyanda. He became a Magnum Nominee in 2018 and a Magnum Associate in 2020. Sobekwa’s work has been exhibited in South Africa, USA, Amsterdam and Iran. His photo essay, Nyaope was published in the Mail & Guardian (South Africa) in 2014. Most recently his work Daleside (with Cyprien Clément-Delmas) was featured in the Guardian, alongside a text by Sean O’Toole.
