  • Ernest Cole House of Bondage

    R1100

    Cole, a Black South African man, photographed the underbelly of apartheid in the 1950s and ’60s, often at great personal risk. He methodically captured the myriad forms of violence embedded in everyday life for the Black majority under the apartheid system—picturing its miners, its police, its hospitals, its schools. In 1966, Cole fled South Africa and smuggled out his negatives; House of Bondage was published the following year with his writings and first-person account. This edition retains the powerful story of the original while adding new perspectives on Cole’s life and the legacy of House of Bondage. It also features an added chapter—compiled and titled “Black Ingenuity” by Cole—of never-before-seen photographs of Black creative expression and cultural activity taking place under apartheid. Made available again nearly fifty-five years later, House of Bondage remains a visually powerful and politically incisive document of the apartheid era.

    Ex Offenders at the Scene of the Crime

    R1300

    The origins of this book lie in David Goldblatt’s (1930–2018) simple observation that many of his fellow South Africans are the victims of often violent crime. And so began Ex Offenders at the Scene of Crime, for which Goldblatt photographed criminal offenders and alleged offenders at the place that was probably life-changing for them and their victims: the scene of the crime or arrest.

    Gary Schneider, Handbook of South African Artists

    Original price was: R560.Current price is: R150.

    In 2011, on a trip to South Africa for an exhibition, Gary Schneider began a series of handprint portraits of South African artists.

    Haabre (Hardback)

    Original price was: R580.Current price is: R150.

    Joana Choumali is fascinated with African people of different social origins who proudly display their facial scarification. But the practice is disappearing in her native Ivory Coast and the surrounding countries, due to pressure from religious and state authorities and urban practices. Choumalis work involves the link between past and present, as well as self-image. For this project she sought out the last generation of people who bear the imprint of the past on their faces. What was once the norm, indicating social standing or tribe, is now excluded. Through portraits and testimonies, the series illustrates the complexity of identity in contemporary Africa, torn between its past and future.
