PHOTOGRAPHY & SOUTH AFRICAN IDENTITIES (article first published : 2002-03-18)

KwaMuhle Museum is to present new and on-going photographic research projects with a local historical focus by Jenny Gordon, who is a social documentary and portrait photographer, embarking on a joint project, funded by the National Research Foundation, with Marijke du Toit (UND Historical Studies).

Photography and South African Identities aims to discover more about the linked and fractured histories of Merebank, Wentworth and the Bluff areas through personal and family photographs of people who live in these areas or used to live there and were forced to relocate.

At the same time, Jenny Gordon will take photographic portraits of residents and ex-residents who would like to participate - as a contemporary record of their relationship to the area.

Jeff Guy (Historical Studies, UND) will present his research on the photographic portraits of R J Mann, photographer in Natal during the 1860s. The focus will be on the problems of exhibiting photographs from this era of colonial history.

The exhibition opens on March 28 in the Mafukuzela Lecture Room at Kwa Muhle Museum, 130 Ordnance Road.
