Our eighth exhibition of images is by acclaimed photographer Jillian Edelstein who was born and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. Her portraits have appeared in many publications including The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair and Vogue. She has worked on campaigns for Comic Relief, The National Theatre, EMI, UNICEF and The Royal Shakespeare Company and has exhibited in prestigious venues such as The National Portrait Gallery. Over the course of her career Edelstein has received several awards including the Kodak UK Young Photographer of the Year in 1986, the Visa d’Or at the International Festival of Photojournalism in Perpignan in 1997 and the John Kobal Book Award in 2003 to name but a few, setting her firmly amongst the best in the business.
Between 1996 and 2002 Edelstein returned to South Africa frequently to document the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Her award-winning book Truth and Lies, shot in large format, was published by Granta in 2002.
