Tshepiso Mabula

An enterprising young photographer who captures the beauty in mundane living.

Tshepiso Mabula is a photographer born in the Lephalale district of Limpopo, South Africa. Mabula’s interest in photography sparked when during a visit to a family member in 2012, she found award-winning South African photographer Santu Mafokeng’s Bloemhof photobook.

Mabula explores the small things through photography: exposing the humanity in oppositional, chaotic or even boring environments. She captures the dignity in ordinary people, far removed from the glamorous or ideal atmospheres of high-profile photography.
