It will be a unique opportunity to purchase work from esteemed photographers such as Guy Tillim, Sue Williamson, Gary Van Wyk, Mikhael Subotsky, Omar Badsha, Cedric Nunn, Obie Oberholzer, Eric Miller, Paul Weinberg, and many more. A number of up and coming young photographers have also added their work to the exciting line-up.
