South African photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa is a rising star in his native country. He’s also subject of an exhibition at The Studio Museum in Harlem through October 24, 2010, and a new book from Aperture.

Zwelethu Mthethwa: Inner Views brings together three series by South African photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa (b. 1960). “Interiors” and “Empty Beds” document the domestic lives of migrant workers around Johannesburg, South Africa, while “Common Ground” focuses on the shared experience of natural disasters in urban areas, featuring houses in New Orleans, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina and on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa, after wildfires.

Flavorwire profiled the exhibition fully yesterday. After the jump, a small selection from Inner Views.
