Photographing Apartheid

There's a great little slide show (and accompanying article) in the New York Times about the photographs of Ernest Cole, a black South African photographer who captured images of Apartheid in the early 1960s. He went into exile in 1966 and, sadly, was homeless in New York for some of the period before his death in 1990. His recently discovered photos are incredible, as well as painful and jarring. Go take a look.
