Lindokuhle Sobekwa started to photograph when he was 17 years old during a photographical workshop in the township Thokoza in Johannesburg. The young South-African photographer turns his camera towards his own community to explore topics like poverty, unemployment, violence and the lives of addicts. In the search of his own identity he has been crossing the path of the personal story of his sister who have been missing from the family for more than 15 years. Sobekwa (b.1995) has been a Magnum Photos nominee since 2018.
