Photo Exhibition : Beneath the Surface - Steve Bloom

  • Jun 1, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Price: free

Meeting Point: 1pm in front of the gallery

An exhibition of Steve Bloom's photographs from the mid 1970’s, capturing a critical moment in the history of apartheid-era South Africa. Some of these images are being shown for the first time, while others have not been seen since they were first exhibited internationally three decades ago.

1976 was a critical year in South African history. The first real cracks in the apartheid system of racial segregation appeared when black school children took to the streets to protest against new laws, which had been introduced to reinforce an inferior education system. The authorities struck back ruthlessly, killing and wounding many defenseless children. It was a time of realisation: the beginning of the end of white complacency and black defeatism.

    A very happy serendipitous afternoon. I got home and the first thing I did was order some Oolong Orange Blossom tea from eBay :)

    Sorry to miss it Chessie - I'll fit it in another time - but the pressures are on again. Sunday looks like being a casualty too.

    There is also a great bar at King's Place itself - The Rotunda where you can sit outside over-looking the canal. Good food as well. By the way is this the same Steve Bloom takes world Class wildlife photography.
