Afrique du sud, chroniques d’un township
For the past decade Anne Rearick has photographed life in predominantly black townships outside Cape Town.
Her pictures (using a conventional medium format camera) display humanist sensibility and convey the spirit of South Africans who face endemic violence, extreme economic hardship, and unabated racism, yet still maintain dignity, hope and courage. Rearick’s work has taken her into the classrooms of overcrowded schools and the emergency room of an underfunded public hospital, into churches and people’s homes. With South Africa’s current political climate, economic instability and increasing social unrest, the images show what is at stake in this fragile new democracy.
