Jürgen Schadeberg was born in Berlin in 1931. Having trained at Berlin's College for Optics and Phototechnology, he emigrated to South Africa where he settled as a photographer and film maker. Along with his photo-reportages on life in the Townships around Johannesburg, he achieved global recognition with his portraits of Nelson Mandela and other prominent world figures.
On 23 June, Jürgen Schadeberg will be visiting London's Belgravia Gallery to speak about his work, which includes some of the most significant photographs of the twentieth century. The accompanying exhibition also features largely unknown works from the past 65 years of his career, as well as pastel drawings by Nelson Mandela. Spaces are limited.
