Cedric Nunn (Born 1957 in Nongoma, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa) is one of the great mid-generation representatives of South African photography. The artist, who comes from one of the country’s oldest families, addresses social life in South Africa, both in rural regions as well as in the metropolises.
He documents domestic political conflicts among the black population as well as the civil war of the eighties and its impact. He is interested in the reality of apartheid beyond media-generated images and social prejudices. For an extended period of time he focused in particular on the people in the South African province of KwaZulu Natal and in neighboring Mozambique.
This publication features his photographs from the late seventies to the present day, allowing insight into a previously unknown African world. His aesthetically and compositionally unusual photographs combine reality with poetry.
