Jason Larkin
Tales from the City of Gold

In his most wide-ranging photographic project to date, Larkin explores the vast waste dumps created by Johannesburg’s historic gold-mining industry, territory where history, economy and contemporary South Africa collide.
His sensitive landscapes of life on these incongruous manmade monuments, remnants of Africa’s most successful mining story, highlight the ignored realities of these spaces, and the denial of the environmental legacy which it has left behind.
Jason Larkin (b. 1979 in the UK) is regularly internationally published and recently was awarded the Arnold Newman New Portraiture Award. He was nominated for both the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize and Prix Pictet photography awards for Cairo Divided, a freely-distributed publication. Exhibitions include the Brighton Photo Biennial, Farnsworth Art Museum, Maine, and Flowers Gallery, London. This publication was supported by Falmouth College of Arts, UK.
