Walkabout on George Hallett’s work

There will be a retrospective walkabout tour on George Hallett’s work at the Iziko South African National Gallery on 16 March at 11:00. Members of the Friends of ISANG need to pay R 30 and non-members pay R 40 to attend. Hallett is a photographer born in District Six in 1942. He first worked as a street photographer and when District Six was declared a white area, SA writer and publisher James Matthews suggested he photograph the area ‘before the bulldozers move in’. After working for the Times Educational Supplement in London in the 70’s and in several countries across Europe he returned to South Africa in 1990 and again in 1994 on photographic assignments. The retrospective exhibition at the Iziko South African National Gallery provides an opportunity to view a body of work produced over a period of more than 50 years.
