Tales from Jozi

Schadeberg, J

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

A photographic essay of life in Johannesburg. It reveals Jozi as a city of contrast and difference. The vibrancy and diversity of Joburg frame the stark disparities of income and poverty that characterise Africa’s richest city. Particular mention is made of the plight of the inner-city poor. Schadeberg’s photographs are enhanced with text by Stephan Hofstatter (investigative journalist and writer); Mak Manaka (poet, performer, writer); Lebo Mashile (poet, performer, media personality); Carole Rothlisberger (magazine editor and writer); Colin Jiggs Smuts (novelist, educator and cultural activist); Stuart Wilson (researcher at the Centre for Applied Legal Studies); Gringo Wotshela (writer and film-maker). In partnership with the Centre for Applied Legal Studies, Wits University.



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 immigrated to South Africa and became Chief Photographer, Picture Editor and Art Director on Drum magazine. Since then he has been working in and about South Africa, capturing pivotal images on film. Today, he remains a principal figure in South African and world photography. His major body of work, which spans 55 years and incorporates a collection of some 100 000 negatives, captures a wealth of timeless and iconic images.
