Whitney Petersen


Born in South Africa, 1994, Whitney Petersen currently works and resides in her hometown Eldorado Park, a small town in the south of Johannesburg. Petersen’s work comments on identity and race, using photography as a preferred medium to convey her narratives. Personal experiences form the foundations for her projects and involve notions around socio-political constructions of race, identity and representation in a South African context, as well as more personal works around home and death. Through documentation of her personal visual narratives, Petersen aims to create and engage in dialogues around the work.
