South African writer and photographer Lidudumalingani now has an Instagram storefront where he sells prints of his photographs.

Lidudumalingani first stole our hearts when his short story “Memories We Lost” won him the 2016 Caine Prize for African Fiction. We’ve since kept an eye on his work, including his photographs, which he shares on Instagram @lidudumalingani

It is exciting to see him take his work in photography to the next level by putting it out in the market. His catalogue is expansive and includes portraits, cityscapes, events, etc. Unframed photographs are going for R1,500 while framed photographs cost R2,500. At the moment, he can only deliver to Johannesburg and Ekapa, but if you cover the shipping cost he can get your prints to other locations.

To order, simply screen capture the photograph you want. Send an email containing the image to Lidudumalingani at dudumalingani@gmail.com. After you’ve both worked out the payment method, the image will be sent to you.

Check out the small sampler of his work that we put together.
