(1930-) Photographer and editor. As picture editor of Drum magazine he recorded life in South Africa, and notably in the black townships over more than forty years. His images of township live in Sophiatown and other areas are the quinessential images of the fifties and sixties, and inspired numerous photographers, plays and films. His role as documentor of the work from this time (e.g. the book Finest Photos from the Old Drum - 1987 and The Fifties People of South Africa - 1987) has also been hugely important. The photographs have been used as set material in numerous films and stage plays.
