Lebohang Kganye (b. 1990, Katlehong) is an artist living and working in Johannesburg, South Africa. Kganye completed the Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Courses in Photography at the Market Photo Workshop between 2009 and 2011. Upon completing her photography studies, she worked as a freelance photographer at etv and is currently enrolled at the University of Johannesburg for a Fine Art Degree.

Kganye has participated in several photography workshops and masterclasses. She has had several art exhibitions in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Potchefstroom, Cape Town, Harare, London, Amsterdam, Paris and New York. Kganye was the recipient of the Tierney Fellowship Award in 2012, leading to her solo show Ke Lefa Laka, Market Photo Workshop Gallery (2013).

Kganye’s photography incorporates her interest in sculpture and performance of the archive and memory. She confronts her collected and altered photographs; the artist and her family’s, as material for both memory and fantasy. She explores fictional history by using archives to merge illusive characters with “real” characters in a new universe.
