Exhibition Review: Ernest Cole Photographer

Images of South African apartheid (1948 – 1994) are not part of the living memory of today’s New York University students.

The first solo museum exhibition of Ernest Cole’s photojournalism, Ernest Cole Photographer is a guided tour of racial and labor divisions as experienced by black men and women, witnessed by the eye of one of South Africa’s first black photo journalist.

Lincoln: “Get up, you hussy!”

“It would astonish if not amuse, the older citizens to learn that I (a stranger, friendless, uneducated, penniless boy, working on a flatboat at ten dollars per month) have been put down here as the candidate of pride, wealth, and aristocratic family distinction.”
