Peace and Blessings be with you.
I had the privilege of photographing the opening of the exhibition that is currently taking place at the Convention Center in Cape Town commemorating the 1913 Natives Land Act. The Exhibition was meant to run only on Thursday and Friday, but was extended to Sunday with very good reason.
To say that the multimedia exhibition is visceral would be an understatement. The experience is one that necessarily all South Africans, who want to look back at the last 100 years and more of this country’s struggle MUST see. The dynamic of legitimizing the legal robbery of the land, the human consequences that reverberate strongly today even, and the instant labour force for the complicit mining industries are there made evident.
I urge you to take your family and go if you are in the Cape Town region.
