This solo exhibition by the Johannesburg-based photographer Jabulani Dhlamini, entitled UMama, displays a selection of intimate portraits of single mothers and their homes, which pay tribute to women and especially to mothers. It explores the difficult challenges and various roles faced by women raising children on their own in South African townships. In 2011 Dhlamini was awarded the annual Edward Ruiz mentorship, which launches young photographers under the mentorship of a professional photographer. Under the guidance of Jodi Bieber, Dhlamini’s project culminated in the exhibition UMama, displayed for the first time at the Market Photo Workshop Gallery.
