Schadeberg (J.) THE WAY I SEE IT, a memoir
469pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2017. R310
Photographer Jürgen Schadeberg was born in Berlin in 1931. In 1950 he emigrated to South Africa and became chief photographer, picture editor and art director at “Drum” magazine. In 1964 he left South Africa and worked in London, the USA and Europe before returning to South Africa in 1985 for 22 years. Currently he lives in Spain.

“Dapper man Jürgen Schadeberg, originally from Germany, is one of the few masters in journalism who welcomed me and kicked my ass to do better when I arrived in Sin City. This memoir is a broadcast of his journey South and through continental Europe - it is a reflection of Schadeberg’s striking, interventionist, visual journalism: considerate, questioning, empathetic and ultimately beautifying.” Bongani Madondo, author of “Sigh, the Beloved Country”
