Memory Against Forgetting by Ranjith Kally

Quivertree Publications

192 pages

R310 at

The iconic images taken by photojournalist Ranjith Kally have finally been collated in a sumptuous hardcover book. It offers a first-hand, on-the-ground perspective of a country in upheaval through a carefully curated selection of photographic memories.

The images are drawn from the photographer’s work for publications like Drum Magazine and Golden City Post, where he documented landmark political moments, social events and portraits of the people who changed the future of our country.

The anthology celebrates Kally’s richly human contribution to the South African struggle. Here are a few of our favourite pictures, with commentary by the photographer.

You can win your own copy of this magnificent book. To win one of two copies of the book, SMS your name, surname, email address and the keyword MEMORY to 42987. SMSes cost R1.50
