Research Interests
Josephy’s research interests include Southern African Photography, documentary photography, contemporary art and colonial photography. Her writing on these areas has been published in books, journals and catalogues on art and photography. Josephy’s research is concerned with the politics of post apartheid photography, particularly as it connects to the politics of the land and its representation in relation to identity. Her current research is concerned with demonstrating shifts in South African photography, which have taken place in a post apartheid context. She is interested in ‘new documentary’ forms that have emerged in post apartheid South Africa, in particular those which relate to the representation of the land and structures. Her work as a producer of visual research is concerned with locating herself within this paradigm.
