As the 2012 Stadard Bank Young Artist of the Year, Mikhael Subotzky is a rising figure in contemporary South African photography circles. Born in 1981 in Cape Town, South Africa, Subotzky graduated with distinction from the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town.

The history of documentary photography plays a decisive role in Subotzky’s work. At an early age, the artist was exposed to the activist work of his uncle, Gideon Mendel, one of South Africa’s notable “struggle photographers”. Subotsky’s work questions and challenges the post-Apartheid society and presents its protagonaists in a wholly unapologetic way.

Subotsky’s work has been exhibited widely in major galleries and museums. His photographs can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the South African National Gallery (SANG) in Cape Town, and the WITS Art Museum in Johannesburg.
