Parity and Representation in Photojournalism

Images from Unfolding Zine

Unfolding is the project of five photographers working in collaboration to bring parity and representation to the world of storytelling through the main discipline of photojournalism. The Unfolding team have over 25 years of experience working throughout the world, documenting global events and photo essay assignments. Here we share a selection of images from the first two editions of the self-published Unfolding Zine, covering a diverse range of issues from global human rights abuses to Africa Fashion Week.

The five photojournalists are Beresford Hodge, Thabo Jaiyesimi, Humphrey Nemar, Pierre Alozie and Sharron Wallace. Issues of Unfolding Zine can be purchased through Parallax Photographic Coop’s website.
