Contemporary South African photography
Tamar Garb

This ambitious volume, published as the catalogue to an exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, presents a wide-ranging selection of the photography that has emerged in post-apartheid South Africa.  Showcasing photographs taken over the last decade by seventeen South African photographers, the book makes a strong case for a vibrant photographic culture, especially within portraiture and documentary work.
