Tate Photography: Sabelo Mlangani | Author: Sarah Allen

Many of the stories that Sabelo Mlangeni tells are of communities on theperiphery of society. Taking time to build relationships, he gains trust and, eventually, access to inner circles and sacred spaces. People are at the heart of Mlangeni's photography, often those who have been pushed to the so-called 'margins', or whose stories could have easily gone untold.

Mlangeni's work seeks to recentre themes of friendship, love and joy in the face of ever-present risk. Above all, his images tell stories of seeking out your people, choosing a family and building a home, wherever you find yourself.

The Tate Photography Series is a celebration of international photography in the Tate collection and an introduction to some of the greatest photographers at work today.
