SOUTH AFRICA

Photographer: Gerald Hoberman; author, Don Pinnock

South Africa captures the multi-faceted nature of South Africa's landscapes and people with a mix of photographs ranging from Soweto and the panoramic sweep of the Union Buildings in Pretoria to the green hills of Kwazulu-Natal and the majestic thrust of the Drakensberg Mountains.

In search of the soul of a newly awakening land, Hoberman has photographed a sacrificial ceremony of the Xhosa, captured the lifestyle of Bushmen living close to the land in the dry northern country, and shared mampoer, a hell-fire, home-made brew, with farmers in the remote Groot Marico district. His photographs reflect the vivid colors of autumn vineyards basking in the late afternoon sun, the unexpected luxuriance of a tilled field in the arid Karoo, and the golden hills of the Free State. This collection of photographs is enriched by aerial shots of landmarks such as Table Mountain and Robben Island, and the cities of Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria. Several wildlife images are also included.

With South Africa, Hoberman has captured a beautiful country and its people in a time of excitement and transformation, while retaining an eye for that which does not change: old places and ancient customs upon which time seems to have no grasp.
