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.

My work is based in trust. I don't work well just snapping pictures, although some people would say the opposite. I really feel like intimacy and trust are the guide to my work.
