Description

This is a stunning collection of more than 100 portraits, in black and white, of writers and, in particular, South Africa.

The chronological arrangement reveals the changing conditions and roles of writers from the 1960s to the present. While the early pictures were mostly taken in exile, there is a distinct shift as writers came back to South Africa in the early nineties.

The most recent photographs were taken after Pretoria Writers’ Conference in 2002, which provided landmark debates around the identity and role of writers currently living in South Africa. A foreword by Keoratse ‘Willie’ Kgositsile reflects the diversity of views held by writers living in contemporary South Africa.
