Edited by Delia Klask, Rolf-P. Seippel. Text by Luli Callinicos, Wiebke Ratzeburg, Andries Walter Oliphant.
Ethnically diverse, and blighted by conflict and violence for decades, South Africa has supplied photography with a great deal of subject matter. Today the country's extraordinarily rich photographic heritage is an important part of its continual effort to maintain consciousness of the injustices and crimes of the Apartheid years. South African Photography 1950-2010 includes the work of some of the most important photographers working in the region in the postwar era: Bob Gosani, Peter Magubane, David Goldblatt, Ranjith Kally, Cedric Nunn, Santu Mofokeng, Mikhael Subotzky, Pierre Crocquet, Jodi Bieber and anonymous photographers for DRUM Magazine (BAHA Archives). Encompassing the turmoil and transformations of the past 60 years, this publication is divided into three historical periods: "Apartheid, 1950-1976"; "Struggle, 1976-1994"; and "Freedom, 1994-2010."
