HARARE – A freelance photojournalist based in Harare, Davina Jogi is opening a showcase entitled “The Cycle”, a photographic exhibition about water and sanitation in the city of Harare, at the National art Gallery of Zimbabwe in Harare from October 13 to November 19.
Jogi focuses on telling daily life stories about Zimbabwe that are often not covered by international media, and has worked with a variety of local and international newspapers, magazines and NGOs.
She was awarded the 2012 Media and Advocacy Grant from Market Photo Workshop for which she photographed a story about Harare’s water and sanitation challenges, entitled The Cycle.
The Media and Advocacy Photography Mentorship is solely aimed at the development of photographers with an interest in documenting societal issues that might often go unacknowledged in the mainstream media.
Jogi is the first recipient of the award and her mentor for the project was Jonathan Torgovnik.
The Market Photo Workshop is a Johannesburg-based school of photography, gallery and resource centre for practising photographers.
Since its establishment in 1989, the school has played an integral role in the training and growth of photographers from South Africa and further afield. – Entertainment Writer
