p>The joy and the terror of the Click! Photography Festival derive from the same source: its sheer volume. So many photography exhibits and events in so many places for the whole month of October! If you're not already a lens hound it can be hard to figure out where to plunge in (though the Click 120 VIP pass provides a handy roadmap if you want to spend $120 on it). But most of Click! is free, and to help you navigate it, we'll be highlighting key exhibits throughout the month, such as this group show at Allcott Gallery in Chapel Hill. It presents a selection of work that came out of the advanced photography program at Johannesburg's prestigious Market Photo Workshop—images in which perspectives of South Africa's physical landscape are inevitably shaped by the fallout from Apartheid's long lifespan and arduous dismantling. In a world of forced removals and contested property rights, land is more than land; it's a current and a currency of identity. Starting with this opening reception, see it through the eyes of Nkosinathi Khumalo, Tshepiso Mazibuko, Tegobo Moche, and others through Nov. 2. —Brian Howe
