Description of Black and White Fifties. Jürgen Schadeberg’s South Africa
During apartheid, Jürgen Schadeberg worked for the leading "black" publications of the time. This gave him access to young activists such as the lawyer Nelson Mandela. Iconic images of many future South African leaders followed. Judge Albie Sachs, an ANC activist who lost an arm in an attack by security police, says of this collection: "Jurgen Schadeberg rips moments and people out of time, place and mood so that we can engage with them here and now, as we are, in the moment of seeing. With every picture we are startled and feel a shiver of joy. Was it really like that? Look at the faces from back then, the hairstyles, the clothes they wore, the way they looked at each other. What has stayed the same, what has changed? There is the honesty of the values, the dignified and respectful approach to the subject and, above all, to the people who might be involved. In this respect, Jürgen's photographs are extraordinarily sensitive."
