Taking Sides in South Africa

January 26 – February 16, 1987

McPherson Library Gallery

This exhibition features twenty-five 16×20 black and white photographs taken by members of AFRAPIX, South Africa’s first non-racial photographer’s co-op. These photographs evoke the spirit of the anti-apartheid movement and its hope that a new society, responsive to the black majority, can be built in South Africa.

AFRAPIX photographers give a balance to the mainstream news photographs of destruction and oppression with affirmative images of resistance and regeneration. This exhibition has been purchased by OXFAM Canada.
