Rhodes must fall

German magazine Die Zeit asked if I could do portraits of both Athinangamso Nkopo and Tadiwa Madenga who are both Oxford University students fighting passionately for the removal of the Cecil Rhodes statue in Oxford. Their campaign is for the removal of Oriel College’s statue of Rhodes, the Victorian imperialist who supported apartheid-style measures in southern Africa. The 'Rhodes must fall' campaign started in South Africa in 2015 and has quickly spread with those opposed to his values seeing him as a racist, colonialist figure who helped usher in apartheid in South Africa.
