Beth and the Giant Snail – Ledbury Farm, Mazawe, Zimbabwe, 2013: by Katherine Cooper


Katharine Cooper has a wonderfully complex cultural mix: a white girl born in South Africa in 1978, receiving her school education in Zimbabwe, she then studied photography in Great Britain and Arles in the Camargue region of France – where she’s still based. This image comes from her Photo Series #4 “White Africans“. Her site is in English and French – she’s represented by a Dutch gallery – and generally she seems to be exhibited and appreciated mainly in a francophone context.

I love that snail, and Beth’s slightly quizzical expression as she regards it….
