The PLP has been established to provide information about South African and African photography, its photographers and archives. Many historical collections exist outside of the countries where the photographs were originally taken and are housed beyond the borders of the continent. The PLP is creating a portal that will enable engagement with these archives to enable research, enrich education and stimulate curation. This is an ongoing project. Please communicate with us about archives, photographers who you think should be included through our CONTACT form.

Please view the separate searchable databases below for ARCHIVES and PHOTOGRAPHERS.
To visit and then access any link within the archive simply click on any link OR right click and choose either:

Bradlow, Adil The SAHA Original Photograph CollectionLinkAfrican Media Online LinkThe photographs in this archive are a
selection of images I shot during the early years of my career as a
journalist. They span from the beginning, as a freelance news
photographer on the streets of Cape Town just as a state of emergency
was declared in the mid-1980s. Then by 1987 I was on contract with the
Associated Press covering the broad range of news stories related to the
struggle against Apartheid. After the release of Nelson Mandela and the
unbanning of the ANC, and the eventual elections in 1994, I began to
travel beyond our borders covering some of the big news events of the
period. In 1999 I quit stills and switched to television where I
continue to work to this day
