DAVEY, Moyra
Gold Dumps and Ant Hills

Shot in South Africa in 1992, Moyra Davey’s Gold Dumps and Ant Hills is a series of black-and-white photographs of mounds left behind by two types of excavation—one human and one animal. For Davey, the pairings of gold dumps and ant hills “invite not only our imagined associations but, as South African landscapes, our received, politically charged associations as well.” The photographs are presented here in book form for the first time, published by Toupée, the Berlin-based imprint of Joji Koyama.
