An emblematic figure in South African photography, Jürgen Schadeberg was one of the founding members of the iconic magazine Drum; he was the rare white witness accepted by the black community in 1951 to document daily life under apartheid, the great protest figures of jazz, and extraordinary political figures including Nelson Mandela, from his flagship speech of 1951, to his release. Unmissable, his remarkable work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world. Schadeberg is considered the father of South African photography. His photographs have gone down in history documenting apartheid and life in Johannesburg’s black neighborhoods as early as the 1950s.
