Badsha Brilliance, The Mercury, 1 October 2015

Some of the many fascinating images featured in Seedtime: A Retrospective of Omar Badsha, an exhibition now at the Durban Art Gallery in the city centre.

The exhibition covers work from the 1960s and includes Badsha’s early prints and drawings, as well as his now-celebrated photographic essays. Clockwise, from left, are photographs of a teacher in Inanda in 1983; a candid shot of woman in a canteen; Dorothy Nyembe in 1983, celebrating her release after 15 years in prison; and a candid shot in KwaZulu-Natal in 1983.
