Clint Strydom is a Johannesburg-based photographer, lens-based artist, and photo essayist. His self-taught lens-based artistry unravels the hidden perspectives of the overlooked or forgotten in society, resulting in work that is timeless, measured and still – visual narratives that permeate political, private, and commercial spaces. In his quest to re-balance historical narratives, Strydom created Hidden Shadows and Silent Voices of Prison Number 4 – a body of work captured inside the historic and notorious ‘Number Four’ prison at Constitution Hill. With this series, he wanted to communicate the great injustice and inhumanity of conditions in this infamous prison where numerous political prisoners, including Mahatma Gandhi, Robert Sobukwe, and Albert Luthuli, were incarcerated. Strydom’s experimental signature style has also resulted in collaborations with Aston Martin International, FIFA, the Mexican International Football Hall of Fame, Mbongeni Ngema, the City of Johannesburg, Constitution Hill, Mercedes, and many others. In 2016, he opened The Melrose Gallery, in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, creating one of the few artist-owned galleries in South Africa
