Introduction

Jodi has worked in more than 50 countries, primarily in the Middle East and Asia, specializing in large-scale, global stories. Jodi is obsessed with the human condition, particularly in an increasingly interconnected world—she seeks out raw humanity in every location she visits, and was thrilled and excited by the melting pot that is Johannesburg—its people, its warmth, its creativity all contributed to a truly unique urban experience.

Cobb has also photographed for the Day in the Life and Vietnam Veterans Memorial: The Wall, Here Be Dragons, and The Way Home: Ending Homelessness in America. Her work was also featured in the book Women Photographers at National Geographic.

She has also won several awards, including numerous National Press Photographers Association Pictures of the Year awards and World Press awards. She was also the first woman to be named White House Photographer of the Year.

The city is teeming with an new and exciting dynamic creative energy, and established artists and cultural spaces. The city has always been a melting pot, of cultures, ideas, visions, people and projects; and this has never been truer. New sites such as Arts on Main and 44 Stanley, are springing up around the city, providing a vibrant home and outlet for both cutting edge contemporary art and design as well as more traditional practices.

Resident artists are now becoming key players on the international art scene, presenting a refreshing new interpretation on many subjects as a result of the fascinating influences of both South Africa’s and Johannesburg’s colourful history.
