The sale, presented in partnership with the Photography Legacy Project (PLP) a­­­­­­­­­­­­­­n organisation established to support the digitisation of photographic legacies in Africa – was the largest collection of African photography ever to come to auction. The auction showcased a diversity of subject matter – ranging from landscape to the interior, gender-based issues to surfing culture and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Notable inclusions were works by Zimbabwean photographer Tamary Kudita and young award-winning woman photographer, Lee-Ann Olwage who collaborated with Belinda Qaqamba Kafassie. Emerging photographers like Kongo Astronauts collective (DRC) and the documentary imagery of Etinosa Yvonne (Nigeria) added depth and diversity, while the older generation of established practitioners like David Goldblatt, Alf Kumalo and Ernest Cole also featured.
