Living Apart: Photographs of Apartheid

g

In post-war South Africa the government gradually developed a policy to retain the rights and privileges of the white minority - apartheid. Although other societies experienced racial prejudices, South Africa was the only government to institutionalise and regulate segregation, often producing bizarre situations. The notion of this duty to 'live apart' whilst occupying the same space is documented in Ian Berry's photographs.

Berry made his reputation as a photojournalist in South Africa in the 1960s. He worked for several publications, including the Drum, a magazine which chronicled the apartheid years from a Black perspective and was often used as a means to unite and mobilise resistance against the regime. He was the only photographer to document the massacre of at least 69 people in Sharpeville 1960 and has since returned to document some of South Africa's most significant moments. These have included the collapse of apartheid, the rise and fall of Nelson Mandela and the development of right-wing white group AWB, led by the infamous Eugene Terre Blanche.

The exhibition is part of Liverpool's first ever international photography festival, Look11.
