Oxfam Photography Exhibition


Land is Life: South Africa



From Monday 11th August to Friday 15th August the Dunnart Studio Gallery in Ravensthorpe will be hosting the Oxfam photography exhibition Land is Life: South Africa.  Be sure to make the time to come and see this free event of 20 beautiful photographs depicting how others are coping, or not coping, in our world of farming.

“Putting good food on the table can be a challenge for all of us. But for many people around the world, it is a constant worry just having enough food to feed the family.

 And for the women of the Western Cape in South Africa, the lack of secure employment and access to land, as well as the impacts of climate change, are making feeding their families increasingly difficult.

 Documentary photographer, Matthew Willman, captured these images on assignment with Oxfam staff during a trip to record the work being done by Oxfam partner organisation, Women on Farms (WOF).”
