Cedric Nunn started documenting life under Apartheid in the rural province of KwaZulu-Natal where he grew up. In the 1980s, he and a small band of activist photographers founded the collective Afrapix and documented the country’s transition to democracy. We meet at Pretoria Art Gallery before Nunn’s retrospective ‘Call and Response.’ Curator Jacob Lebeko hang the prints as Nunn describes how he became a photographer to engage politically in the struggle.
This video is one in a series of interviews with South African photographers about photography and democracy here – then and now.
