Ilvy Njiokiktjien was named a winner in PDN Photo Annual ’19 Photo Books category for “BORN FREE – Mandela’s Generation of Hope.”
Twenty-five years ago, South Africa held its first inclusive elections. These brought an end to decades of white minority rule. A new constitution gave all South Africans equal rights. As the first black president, Nelson Mandela focused on reconciliation and hope for the future. It would be up to the young generation to make his dream of a rainbow nation come true.
During her work in South Africa, photojournalist Ilvy Njiokiktjien became intrigued by these born-frees, born after the end of apartheid. She portrays them in her own, personal and sometimes intimate style. “There is equality on paper now, but many still experience the consequences of apartheid.”
This photo book contains a rich collection of the most poignant, telling and diverse images, curated by Ilvy Njiokiktjien.
The book has a print run of 1994 copies, signed and numbered — get a copy here.
