Publisher's Description

Publisher cancelled.

Johannesburg-based photographer Santu Mofokeng (born 1956) first began to dedicate himself to portraying everyday experience in South African townships in 1985, first as a member of the Afrapix collective, and then as a documentary photographer for the African Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand.

This three-volume publication, which continues a groundbreaking reappraisal of the photographer’s archive, presents aspects of life in Soweto, where Mofokeng grew up; Dukathole, a township in the East Rand of Gauteng Province; and Johannesburg, the city in which he worked. Taken together, they invite a nuanced understanding of largely unsung narratives from a crucial period in South African history which saw the demise of apartheid.
