First Light - Migration in the Swiss Alps - To discover in South Africa

Two years ago Lavonne Bosman spent three months in the Grisons mountains in Switzerland. There she took a magnificent series of photographs of yesterday’s migrants, the Walsers who had settled in the region for several centuries, and refugees who had recently arrived from countries at war.

Lavonne Bosman will soon be presenting her work in South Africa at the GUS Gallery University Stellenbosch. This new exhibition will present photographs taken in Switzerland and a previous series on AmaXhosa people and their migration from Transkei, also known as Wild Coast, to the city townships.

With her very human and sensitive work Lavonne Bosman helps us realize that, in the end, we are all migrants.
