Lindelwa Msimang is a South African contemporary artist that was born in 2001 February 16 at Edendale in Pietermaritzburg. Growing up Lindelwa loved art since primary school, but ended up having to do Civil Engineering in school. After high school, she started doing her art again through photography.
Her work celebrates the masculinity within my identity. Msimang feels more like a masculine female who has never been free to express her identity due to her surroundings. The spacious landscape that emerges in her work represents the freedom and peace that Msimang has been longing for her entire life. The introduction of roses talks about the fragility and the vulnerability that one can find when they are longing for the freedom of expression. Msimang’s work mainly talks about the history of cameras and it’s also an identity mask representing herself as a photographer.
