Hlala Nge Ntombi series explores themes of African storytelling and idiomatic speech. It also attempts to interrogate and unpack the legacy of gender roles and stereotypes in the Zulu Diaspora.
In isiZulu, “hlala nge ntombi” is a direct command to young girls, meaning to “sit like a lady,” so as to appear respectable and to suit the male gaze. What if I do not want to sit like a lady?
Deciding to use photography to convey my conflicts, the entire production of the work becomes a visual celebration of the multi-layered concept of being a Zulu girl in modern-day South Africa.
