Truth & Lies

Jillian Edelstein

Jillian spent four years attending hearings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission up and down South Africa.

She set up her camera in makeshift studios in rooms next door to where the hearings were held and visited people at home in the townships or deep in the countryside to take their portraits and listen to their stories.

The selected images within this exhibition are a collective portrait of a country which, between the Sixties and Nineties, was engaged in a vicious struggle in which thousands were abducted, tortured and killed.

These powerful images tell some of these stories and puts faces to the personal testimonies of victims and perpetrators.
