Mikhael Subotzky (b. 1981) is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Subotzky’s work in Pollsmoor Prison, in his final year at the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Fine Art, led to an extraordinarily engaged series of photographs of life inside that overcrowded institution, ‘Die Vier Hoeke’. This project took place in 2004, where he also worked with the prisoners teaching them to make their own photographs. This image is from that body of work.
