90ies Project

A photo project by a Mozambican female young photographer.

The photographs revive the 90s through the use of fashion trends and vibes of the time using young Mozambican creative people born and/or raised in the 90s (“the born-free”), knowing that Mozambique was coming out of civil war and opening up to the world at the time.

The photographs were taken in different bairros/urban landmarks of Maputo to recreate the sense of street community that was prominent at the time.

The exhibition is also very collaborative, from working with a filmmaker to create a documentary, artists to create a line of products inspired by the 90s and writers that participate in shaping the magazine.

The Project is a mixed media concept including: a photographic exhibition with a timeline of the 90s and merchandise such as
stickers, postcards, T-shirts, a tote bag and a book. A
documentary will also be screened.

Exhibition Location: The Anstey's Studios are in one of the most famous Art Deco buildings in Johannesburg. Construction of the 20 storeys high building began in 1935 and it was completed in 1937. The building has evolved over the years. It was initially a high-end department store. Ansteys has such rich history.
