The Guardian: Photo archive of life in apartheid-era South Africa to be auctioned. “A rare studio photo archive that shines a light on the undimmed spirit of township life in apartheid-era South Africa is to be auctioned in London. The archive contains more than 1,000 images of people posing for the camera in front of a simple parted black curtain with basic props, often a basket of plastic flowers, cheap plastic sunglasses or an unplugged telephone.”
