Martyrs, saints and sellouts

Photos by the anti-apartheid photographers Benny Gool, Zubeida Vallie and Adil Bradlow. Many of the photos were taken on Cape Flats and show well-known events and political activists, but there are also images of forgotten episodes and nameless victims of violence. The exhibition, curated by Siona O’Connell, is the first group exhibition by these photographers. It initially went on display at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in July 2013. It is now showing at the Castle of Good Hope, the oldest colonial building in South Africa. The photos were taken in the 1980s during the last decade of the fight against apartheid, when the photographers were in their late teens.
