David Kirkland, Xiaohan Shen, Roderick Eime, Lalie Ngozi, Dominic Lonera...At an exclusive event last night, South African Tourism in partnership with the South African High Commission revealed a special photography exhibition to celebrate 20 years of freedom in South Africa; and today the exhibition is officially open to the public.

Earlier this year, five talented photographers embarked on a trip of a lifetime to South Africa after being carefully chosen for the campaign. Their assignment was to capture South Africa and the evolution of the Rainbow Nation. For the first time, the captivating work of David Kirkland, Roderick Eime, Adrian Price, Xiaohan Shen, and Dominic Loneragan was displayed in a memorable occasion.

Throughout the exhibition, guests will have the opportunity to take the essence of South Africa home. Prints are being sold in a silent auction, with all funds raised going to a cause close to Nelson Mandela’s heart, Afrika Tikkun which is dedicated to investing in education, health and social services for children, youth and their families.

Pleased with the result, Her Excellency Ms Koleka Mqulwana from the South African High Commission was thankful for the donations that will so positively affect communities in South Africa.

The tourism body’s latest campaign, labelled ‘Meet South Africa’, was launched at the preview event held at The Black Eye Gallery, in Darlinghurst, Sydney. Ms. Lalie Ngozi, South African Tourism General Manager, Australasia  led the evening, while Lize Heerman, one of South Africa’s most popular multi-lingual, chart topping artists entertained with her smooth voice.

“Through the lens, we are tapping into the insight of Australians who have discovered our beloved country. The resulting images in this exhibition both challenge perceptions, while inspire conversation and, we hope, inspire those who see these works to visit and meet South Africa first hand,” said Ms. Lalie Ngozi, South African Tourism General Manager, Australasia.
