ART OF THE WEEK
7 - 13 April 2014
Macilau is a social documentary photographer whose work reflects life in Mozambique. As per the artist statement on his official website, "working with the ghosts of society as the main characters of his photographs is a long story, dating back to the time when he washed cars on the streets of a post-war Maputo." As such, Macilau's practice constructs narratives filled with both beauty and crudeness.
