"@muholizanele, a photographer known for taking striking portraits of members of the black queer community in #SouthAfrica, has begun to explore self-portraiture. For her, photography is therapy: a daily prayer, written out in the positioning of her limbs and the look haunting her face. ''The whole thing of turning the camera to yourself — it's really not easy,'' she told #NYTMag. ''Because you want to tell the truth, but at the same time you have reservations for confronting the self, dealing with you.'' She took this portrait, "Bester V.," this year. (This image has been cropped.) More #selfportraits by @muholizanele appear in this week's issue of #NYTMag, or at the link above. @stevenson_za @yanceyrichardsongallery" By nytimes on Instagram.
