Next up is a deeply inspiring exhibition focussing on three young photographers and their visualisation of post-apartheid Africa.

The modestly titled 3 Stories show offers a photographic insight into life, love & death in some of the world's most underprivileged places captured by photographers Pieter Hugo, Mikhael Subotzky & Paolo Woods.
