Living Apart: South Africa Under Apartheid
Living Apart: South Africa Under Apartheid
by Ian Berry
Nelson Mandela, Nobel Peace Prize winner and president-elect of South Africa’s first all-race elections in 1994, turns 90 this week. In Living Apart, photographer Ian Berry documents South Africa’s apartheid era—one of institutionalized racism and segregation. Berry portrays apartheid (which comes from the Afrikaans word for “apartness”) bluntly here, capturing a society living apart in the same space—and the struggle to come together.

You must feel an affinity for what you are photographing. You must be part of it, and yet remain sufficiently detached to see it objectively. Like watching from the audience a play you already know by heart.
