Notes

Ledochowski majored in Photography at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town in 1980. The self-proclaimed social documentary photographer joined Afrapix in the early 1980s and contributed to numerous anti-apartheid exhibitions and publications over his illustrious career. He has dedicated much of his time to documenting the ongoing struggles and strife in township communities; the formation and development of the Congress of South Africa Trade Unions; and related organizations in the Cape. Arguably his most famous photograph, Ledochowski captured the iconic occasion of Mandela delivering his first public speech at Grand Parade in Cape Town after his release.
