  • Daniela P. Montelongo

    Montelongo holds degrees from the Institut de Sciences Politiques de Paris (BA), from the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (MA) and is pursuing her PhD at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. Montelongo is interested in the complex relationship between the simultaneously evolving practices of photo-documentary, photojournalism and landscape photography, particularly in relation to the global circulation of images of apartheid South Africa. Her research explores the landscape photography of South African photographers David Goldblatt, Santu Mofokeng and Jo Ractliffe, as being disruptive of canonical uses of the genre. Montelongo is also interested in providing a critical response to the construction of “African photography” as a category, by focusing on the historically specific conditions of the photographic image in the context of apartheid, while expanding her analysis of the genre of landscape beyond the medium of photography.

  • Paul Weinberg

    Weinberg is a South African-born photographer, filmmaker, writer, curator, educationist and archivist. He began his career in the late 1970s by working for South African NGOs, and photographing current events for news agencies and foreign countries. He was a founder member of Afrapix and South, the collective photo agencies that gained local and international recognition for their uncompromising role in documenting apartheid, and popular resistance to it. From 1990 onwards, he has increasingly concentrated on feature rather than news photography. His images have been widely exhibited and published, both in South Africa and abroad. Weinberg also initiated several major photographic projects, notably Then and Now, a collection of photographers from the collective photographic movement of the 1980s, Umhlaba, a project on land, and The Other Camera about vernacular photography in South Africa.

    In 1993 Weinberg won the Mother Jones International Documentary Award for his portrayal of the fisherfolk of Kosi Bay, on South Africa’s north coast. He has taught photography at the Centre of Documentary Studies at Duke University, and Masters in Documentary Arts at UCT. He currently works as an independent curator, archivist and photographer.
