This video from South Africa says about itself:
In preparation for The Glenlivet Meets Alfred Kumalo held at Shine Studio in Braamfontein on 28 July 2010, we approached those close to Kumalo to share a few words about the legendary photojournalist.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Legendary apartheid-era photographer dies
Monday 22 October 2012
“South Africa has lost a self-taught giant in the media field who still bore the scars of torture and mental scars of continuous detentions by the apartheid security forces.
“The ANC bows its head in honour of a singularly brave and daring South African who bequeathed our country and future generations historic moments in his camera.”
Mr Kumalo covered the Rivonia trial, in which Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment, and was present again in 1994 when the anti-apartheid icon was sworn in as South Africa’s first black president.
A show of moving and powerful photographs of life in South Africa in the early 1960s is currently on view at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery. The exhibit, continuing through this Saturday, December 6, provides a look at the remarkable work of a little known black South African, Ernest Cole (1940-1990): here.
