About the photographer, Jo RACTLIFFE

Described by Okwui Enwezor as 'one of the most accomplished and under-rated photographers of her generation,' Jo RACTLIFFE started working in the early 1980s, and her photographs continue to reflect her preoccupation with the South African landscape and the ways in which it figures in the country’s imaginary—particularly the violent legacies of apartheid. In 2007 she extended her interests to the war in Angola and published three photobooks on the aftermath of that conflict and its manifestations in the South African landscape.
