Past and continuing

An exhibition making programme began on Saturday 11 June dealing with the theme of stereotyping and restoring memories using the photographic exhibitions of :

The Indian in Drum Magazine In The 1950sand Ranjith Kally: Through the Lens of Durban's Veteran Photographer.

The programme deals with interpreting local stories and exploring some photographic techniques in order to produce a restored memory for a final exhibition which is scheduled to begin from Saturday  30 July 2011 – 6 August 2011.  Four nominated learners from Cravenby Secondary School and Rylands High School have attended and the last workshop included the facilitation by our famous, George Hallett who has expressed great enthusiasm for the progress that these young cadet documentary photographers are displaying.
