Living Apart: South Africa Under Apartheid
Living Apart: South Africa Under Apartheid
by Ian Berry
As South Africa celebrates Freedom Day on April 27, Magnum looks back on the apartheid era of institutionalized racism and segregation. “Apartheid” comes from the Afrikaans word meaning "apartness," and photographer Ian Berry examines it in stark bluntness here, capturing a society “living apart” in the same space — but coming together in the end.
