Alon Skuy and James Oatway presents an extraordinary visual record of the violence over the past twelve years

More than 12 years have passed since deadly xenophobic attacks swept unexpectedly through South Africa’s townships and informal settlements. The 2008 wave of violence left more than 60 people dead, hundreds injured and tens of thousands displaced from their homes, forcing them to find refuge in makeshift refugee camps, community halls and police stations.  Now in 2021, the violence shows no sign of abating.

Photojournalists James Oatway and Alon Skuy have been documenting this issue for more than twelve years. Their book, [BR]OTHER,  is an extraordinary visual record of the violence over the past twelve years. The foreword, written by former Constitutional Court judge, Justice Edwin Cameron, is accompanied by critical texts by Achille Mbembe, João Silva, Justice Malala, Koketso Moeti and others.  This book is published by Jacana and copies of the book will be available at the event. 

They will speak to the Cape Town Press Club.
