Robyn Perros

Robyn Perros is a writer, documentary-photographer, and multimedia artist currently based in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal. With training in Journalism and Ethnomusicology from the University Currently Known and As Rhodes, and a short background in the magazine industry, Perros soon discovered a discomfort with the lack of depth in traditional journalism practices. Today she is combining and exploring alternative methods of storytelling using analogue photography, video, public performance and social experimentation as her predominant mediums.

Her work explores the social dynamics of public space, the borders between physical and non-physical, displacement, the role of digital media and photography and what it means to be human today. Her last body of work titled: [WO]MANNEQUIN was exhibited at The Other Room Durban in May 2017. Self-reflection, collaboration and participation is a priority in her production.
