Summary note
More than ten years after the end of apartheid, South Africa is still ravaged by political, medical and, as ever, racial struggle. Violence and crime rates remain extremely high, and critics say that the democratic process hasnt helped the disadvantaged or redistributed wealth, it has only installed a new elite. The contemporary photographers Omar Badsha, David Goldblatt, Bob Gosani, Pieter Hugo, Ranjith Kally, Thando Mama, Santu Mofokeng, Jo Ractliffe, Jürgen Schadeberg, Bernie Searle and Andrew Tshabangu have undertaken to document the new South Africa - the changing and the tenaciously unchanging - in pictures. From David Goldblatt's famous Commuter series on black workers forced to travel from the townships to Johannesburg to Omar Badshas Imperial Ghetto, a study of the everyday life of inhabitants of Indian descent in the harbour city of Durban, they seek, and find, home truths.
