Tom Sharpe - Tom Sharpe, photographer (South Africa, 1955-1961). Photography Biennale Xavier Miserachs



DATES
10/09/2016 - 27/11/2016
LOCATION
Can Mario Museum, Palafrugell



The novelist Tom Sharpe (London, 1928-Llafranc, 2013) produced an extensive but little-known body of photographic work in South Africa at the end of the 1950’s and beginning of the 1960’s.  As well as being a freelance photographer, he captured the harsh conditions suffered by black people during apartheid, an activity which, together with his political affiliation, led to him being deported in 1961.  A large part of his photographic output was lost, except for a collection of original black and white prints that were sent to the UK by Sharpe’s assistant, and which today make up part of this exhibition.
