Memory Against Forgetting
Memory Against Forgetting
Memory Against Forgetting, by Ranjith Kally "He captured iconic scenes, such as his portrait Umkumbane, which has come to symbolise the shimmering jazz age of African townships in the 1950s. When Miriam Makeba returned to Maseru, Lesotho, for a concert for black South Africans at the height of apartheid, Kally too ventured to Lesotho and returned home with a remarkable image of an exiled singer poised between joy and heartbreak. And in a series of unflinching portraits, he documented with probity the horror of the forced removals in Natal. In short, the wider appreciation of his contribution to our struggle for dignity needs to remembered and fully embraced for current South Africans intent on honouring their past."

While photographing the book, Shack Chic, which focussed on the lifestyle and inspiration found in the shack-lands of Cape Town, the most frequent reply to my question, ‘Where is your home?’ was ‘Transkei’, I felt the need to explore ‘home’, to understand this attachment that the urban shack dwellers feel for their rural roots. – Craig Fraser
Here life is lived in tune with nature and in cognisance of community. It is here in every inch of a traditional rural dwelling that we find the ideological and decorative footprint of Xhosa culture. SIZE 280 X 280 MM • PAGES 192 • HARD COVER • ISBN 978-0-620-35392-9
