THE EDITORS
It is a reality of the late twentieth century that we are all witness to crisis. There is no escape from the bombardment of imagery and language telling us of the agony of others that reaches the free-reading Western world.

Embedded in the bricks, mud, stone, steel, and concrete of all the structures in South Africa are choices we and our forebears have taken. No building, road, monument, township, resettlement camp, dorp, or city can be, but for the choices that gave it rise and others that are a condition of its continued existence.

It has been just over fifty years since Life magazine sold out all of its first 466,000 copies and the era of big picture magazines commenced in this country.
