About this title


Mario Macilau's photography is a powerful documentation of a complex history implicit to the challenging circumstances of homeless children living in the city of Maputo, Mozambique. It makes a significant contribution not only to African photography but also to the tradition of black and white photography. Growing in Darkness thus forms part of a necessary lexicon that navigates between the veracity of lightness and darkness.
