Description

A new exhibit showcasing iconic photos of the South African Jazz Age, Apartheid era, and the early life of Nelson Mandela is on display at the Pasadena City College Shatford Library.

Running through February 27 in the library's rotunda, the exhibit displays the work of Jurgen Schadeberg, recognized around the world as a pioneer of South African photography.

It also features native beadwork and information about literacy and healthcare programs involving Pasadena teachers and students who have traveled to Cape Town, South Africa on learning trips.

The exhibit is presented by the Altadena-based nonprofit organization Art Aids Art. The group serves women and children through programs in impoverished townships surrounding Cape Town.

Photos and handcrafts are available to purchase at the exhibit. Income from the sales will be reinvested into the projects in Cape Town.
