House of Bondage By Ernest Cole (A South African Black Man Exposes in His Own Pictures and Words the Bitter Life of His Homeland Today). This is a landmark book in South African photojournalism. Cole fled South African in 1966 to publish this remarkable photo-essay which documents apartheid. The book was banned in South Africa but created a sensation abroad. An exhibition of his work and the photos in this book has recently been mounted by the Hasselblad Foundation and was shown at the Johannesburg Art Gallery and abroad. "House of Bondage" is now a collector's item. It is one of only three South African books included in the massive work on "The Photo Book" by Parr and Badger (the other two being by David Goldblatt). This copy is very good in very good dust jacket. Some shelf wear on the book and jacket, corners bumped, some signs of use. Overall a lovely copy.
