EVENT: Travelling Photography Histories from 1950's Cape Town to Britain, and Back
The Photographers' Gallery: Writing Photography Series
29th March 2011 19:00 
This year-long Writing Photography series investigates different approaches, both creative and academic, to writing about photography.
Prof Darren Newbury presents an historical and biographical approach to photographs taken during the apartheid era in South Africa, exploring the complex motivations behind the creation of images, how they have subsequently found their way to new locations, and how these travels change their value and perception.
The presentation focuses in part on a collection of photographs made by Bryan Heseltine in the early 1950s in three black townships in or near Cape Town - Windermere, Langa and Nyanga - as well as the Malay Quarter of the city and District Six.  This is an opportunity to reflect on the recent 're-discovery' of the collection and its meaning in the present for both South African and British audiences.
Darren Newbury is Professor of Photography at Birmingham City University, and author of Defiant Images: Photography and Apartheid South Africa (2009).
