George Hallett’s Photographic Tribute to SA, Moving in Time, Now Available at a New Low Price

Moving in TimeOn 27th April 2004, South Africa’s new democracy was ten years old. It was a memorable decade, certainly one of the most fascinating in this country’s history. Six years on, and photographer George Hallett’s tribute to the seminal first decade, Moving in Time: Images of Life in a Democratic South Africa, is as relevant as ever.

UKZN Press is delighted to announce that this important book is now available in shops at a new price of R325, which is R100 off the original price.

South Africa’s transition to democracy set off a whirlwind of change. Social dynamics were unleashed, leading to rapid, exhilarating – and sometimes bewildering – transformation in every sphere of South African society. Moving in Time (Published with Deep South) presents a look back at this eventful period; to take stock of what has happened, celebrate their achievements and assess their shortcomings.

Although ultimately, a celebration of the achievements of a nation that has managed to come together after centuries of division and conflict, this photographic essay also portrays some of the problem areas the country has experienced. The photographs depict all the aspects of life in this country over the past decade and include achievements in areas such as the arts, education, science, sport, commerce and politics.
