PASSPORT TO LIFE – Photography and commitment – JÜRGEN SCHADEBERG
7 MAY -24 JUNE
Jürgen Schadeberg (Berlín, 1931) is not a conventional photojournalist. With a professional career spanning seven decades, his work documents some of the most radical transitions of history. From its origins taking photos of the Second World War in Germany, to his sixty years shedding light on the Apartheid and the Revolution in South Africa, the work of Schadeberg is legendary. Sony World Photography Awards Academy has named him “the father of Photography of South Africa”. One of his most iconic pictures is the photography of Nelson Mandela in the visit to his cell in the prison of Robben Island (1994) where he was imprisoned 27 years. At 84 years old, Schadeberg, doctor honoris causa by the Technical University of Valencia is still active, working in new photo projects, books and international exhibitions and developing its images manually with silver halide emulsions and gelatine.
