REALITY BYTES (article first published : 2007-01-28)

Reality Bytes is an exhibition of photography by renowned Cape Town based photographer Dale Yudelman soon to be seen at the KZNSA’s Main Gallery.

“Reality Bytes” are images that portray decisive moments in a collective still. They embrace fictive "truths" which retain the raw quality of real moments without compromising the authentic ethics and precepts required by photographic naturalism.

Imbued with story-telling innuendo, satirical humour and social commentary - within a global fabric, this collection of images aims to deflect the psyche from its usual ratlin, to challenge and provoke the assumptive mind. Fable and fact blend to create a new reality that dwells within the eye of the beholder

Dale Yudelman’s career in photography has led him through two eras of South African history as well as across several continents. Born in Johannesburg, he began photographing at a young age under the tutelage of his father and was barely out of his teens in 1979 when he landed a job as staff photographer at South Africa’s largest daily newspaper The Star.

In 1986, Dale Yudelman left South Africa, working as a freelance photographer first in London and later in Los Angeles. He returned to the newly democratic South Africa in1996 and currently lives in Cape Town. His work can be found in major corporate and private art collections worldwide.

For the past five years he worked collaboratively with painter Arlene Amaler-Raviv, creating multi-media images addressing a wide range of social issues. Their most recent collaboration Livestock was exhibited at the 8th Havana Biennale, Cuba and Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo, Norway.

Dale Yudelman is also presenting an accompanying exhibition in the KZNSA’s Multimedia Gallery titled Post Mortem 2010. Both exhibitions run from February 13 (opening at 18h00) to March 4. More information from gallery curator Nathi Gumede on 082 220 0368
