TRANSPORT EXHIBITION (article first published : 2002-04-21)

A joint project by the eThekwini Heritage Department's Local History Museums and Art Gallery and the Imvunge Street Photographers Ngithathungibeke : Taxis and Buses in Durban will be opened at the Old Court House Museum in Aliwal Street by Minister Sbu Ndebele, the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Minister of Transport at 18h00 on April 26.

Images captured by 19 photographers take viewers on a journey through Durban's taxi and bus world. The early morning and late afternoon queues; the intriguing names and slogans on the vehicles; the vendors whose trade is inextricably linked to the taxi and bus industry; the drivers; conductors and commuters are some of the sights taken in on this journey. While for some, the taxis and buses are a menace on the roads, for the majority of the City's residents they are the only affordable way to get to work, school or other destinations. For the drivers and conductors the taxis and buses are a means of survival.

Ngithathungibeke: Taxis and Buses in Durban is an important project in that it provides the street photographers with an opportunity to showcase their work while also adding to the City's heritage collection of contemporary images.

The exhibition will be on view at the Old Court House Museum until the end of May after which it moves to the Kwa Muhle Museum in June.
