BOOKSELLER TRADE ANNOTATION

First published in the US in 1967 House of Bondage presented images from South Africa that shocked the world.
  • ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER: ERNEST COLE (b 1940) was self-taught Black South African photographer who documented the lives of Black South Africans under Apartheid in the early 1960s. Many of his photos were made clandestinely - --Spectacularly tenacious, he got into prisons by getting himself arrested, and into mining compounds, hiding his camera under sandwiches in a paper lunch bag and shooting through a tear in the bag. He left South Africa at the age of 26 -- came to NYC. He died in exile in 1990 at the age of 49 homeless of cancer- one week after Nelson Mandela was freed from prison
  • ABOUT THE BOOK: Originally published in 1967 in the US by Random House, Cole's photographs were the first glimpses of the harshness and oppression of life under apartheid in South Africa for the rest of the world. It caused a political furor in South Africa - where it was banned. This is is the first time the book is being brought back to print
  • PRAISE:"One of the frankest books ever done on South Africa." -Robert Cromie, Chicago Tribune

Ernest Cole: House of Bondage

Text by Thomas Flaherty, Joseph Lelyveld.

"One of the frankest books ever done on South Africa." -Robert Cromie, Chicago Tribune

First published in the US in 1967 and in Britain in 1968, House of Bondage presented images from South Africa that shocked the world. The young African photographer Ernest Cole had left his country at 26 to find an audience for his stunning exposure of the system of racial dominance known as apartheid. In 185 photographs, Cole’s book showed from the vantage point of the oppressed how the system closely regulated and controlled the lives of the black majority. He saw every aspect of this oppression with a searching eye and a passionate heart.

House of Bondage is a milestone in the history of documentary photography, even though it was immediately banned in South Africa. In a Chicago Tribune review, Robert Cromie described it as “one of the frankest books ever done on South Africa—with photographs by a native of that country who would be most unwise to attempt to return for some years.” Cole died in exile in 1990 as the regime was collapsing, never knowing when his portrait of his homeland would finally find its way home. Not until the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg mounted enlarged pages of the book on its walls in 2001 were his people able to view these pictures, which are as powerful and provocative today as they were 50 years ago.

Ernest Cole was born near Pretoria, South Africa, in 1940. Leaving school at 17 to become a photographer, he secured staff jobs and freelance assignments for newspapers and magazines for black people—honing his skills with a correspondence course from the New York Institute of Photography. Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson’s book The People of Moscow, in 1960 Cole embarked on a project to document the lives of his people, which resulted in House of Bondage.
