About the Work

Outside Pretoria, the capital of South Africa, stands a massive anachronism - the Voortrekker Monument. As glum Boer tourists trudged around, a few months before South Africa's elections, I photographed the stern stone effigies of their historic leaders flanking the monument. These were then juxtaposed with bullet-scarred paving stones. These I photographed soon after several ANC members had been shot by white police after they had been ordered to lie face down on a Durban pavement.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
