About the event

The London Festival of Photography presents Steve Bloom's evocative 1970's photographs capturing a critical moment in the history of South Africa.

In 1976 the first cracks in the apartheid system appeared as black school children rose to protest against the unfair education laws that were imposed. Internationally acclaimed photographer Steve Bloom took to the streets of South Africa, photographing people in this pivotal historical moment. His pictures, edgy and fleeting, capture the tension of the time while others, such as portraits of down-and-outs, show the utter despair of people under apartheid.

Bloom manages to capture the complex emotional essence of the moment South Africa began to experience unstoppable, real dissent, in these images that kickstarted his career. Bloom is a writer and photographer famous for his wild life photography. He has won an array of international awards for his work, including The Power of Photography Award and The Golden Eye of Russia.
