In Enter Exit Pierre Crocquet de Rosemond ( *1971 in Cape Town) has captured the daily lives of a small community in his native South Africa. These striking photographs focus on the surreal reality and lifestyle of the inhabitants, confronting us with different realities, both familiar and austere. The dark humor and harshness simultaneously reflect Crocquet’s empathy with his subjects. The work shocks, engages, and lingers as a haunting memory.

South Africa has seen many dramatic changes, with a particular irony evident in today's post-apartheid society, where division is still evident, but is now set primarily along economic lines. It is a situation with which both Third and First World can increasingly identify; Crocquet forces us to hold up a mirror and realize that although representational of a small South African community, these reflections and emotions can be transported to any post-modernist society. We become an integral part of the story.
