San of the Kalahari, The

Beskikbaarheid: In stock

R275,00

Quick Overview

The San inhabited the whole of southern Africa before the spear and the gun drove them further into the desert region of the Kalahari. They are among the last of the hunting and gathering societies in an agricultural and industrialised world. Small by Western standards, the polite greeting to a San man is one of deference to his unmistakable stature ... “I saw your shadow looming afar” ...
Although their lifestyle may appear haphazard to the casual eye, on closer inspection, a defined pattern appears. In July 1959 Jurgen Schadeberg joined an expedition led by Professor Phillip Tobias, then chairman of the Kalahari Research Committee of the University of the Witwatersrand, to study the San.
The result is this collection of stunning black and white photographs, provided with detailed captions, as well as insightful introductory and concluding chapters.

Details

Jurgen Schadeberg was born in Berlin in 1931 and, while still in his teens, worked as an apprentice photographer for a German Press Agency in Hamburg. In 1950 he emigrated to South Africa and became Chief Photographer, Picture Editor and Art Director on Drum Magazine. It was during this time that Jurgen photographed pivotal moments in the lives of South Africans in the fifties. These photographs represent the life and struggle of South Africans during Apartheid and include important figures in South Africa’s history such as Nelson Mandela, Moroka, Walter Sisulu, Yusuf Dadoo, Huddleston and many others who have been documented at key moments such as during The Defiance Campaign of 1952, The Treason Trial of 1958, The Sophiatown Removals and the Sharpeville Funeral in 1960.
