Oath Journal's second volume offers a sumptious study of love's images. With photographs by emerging and established photographers from across the African continent, the publication is a visual diary of coinciding sensibilities and moods. In both word and picture, it explores the intimacies of families, lovers, and friends; attending to love in all its variable shades.
Celebrating the art of photography, championing new talent from Africa, and shining a light on overlooked archives, this volume's Go-See's section focuses on upcoming photographers, while contibutions from Jodi Beiber, Lindokhule Sobekwa and the archives of Malick Sidibe offer images from familair lenses.
In addition to full-page images and carefully curated spreads, Oath Vol. 2 | Love features texts from four writers in converstion with photographs: Alex-Rose Cowie, Bongani Kona, Nomazwi Nkoane, and Robin Sher.
Founded in Cape Town by photographer Stephanie Blomkamp, Oath Magazine is presented as 'a photography pledge', "promising to provide artists across Africa with a home in print.”
