Stanley will be in conversation with Sunil Shah about his book 'One Wall a Web' discussing its themes and contexts.
Racism and gendered violence in today's America sets the context for Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa's 'One Wall a Web' made in collaboration with Roger Willems and released on Roma Publications in 2018. This conversation with Sunil Shah examines the book, its wider implications around race and society and the multi-layered intersections of subjectivity in its use of texts and visual approaches to documentary.

Originally from the United Kingdom, writer and photographer Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa has lived in America since 2012. His recent book with Roma Publications, One Wall a Web, draws together poetry, critical writing, and photography to reflect on the ways that race, gender, and violence are woven into the fabric of (white) Western modernity. Set in America – with its history of injustice and its troubled present – One Wall a Web asks how documentary photography both participates in this complex play of forces, and suggests ways that we might find alternative pathways through it. In November 2018, One Wall a Web won the Aperture First Book Award.
