Abstract:The exhibition 'Breathing Spaces: Environmental Portraits of Durban's Industrial South' was shown in Durban (South Africa) in 2007 and in Cape Town in 2009. Its aim was to build a portrait of Durban harbour's residential-industrial hinterland - especially the three adjacent neighbourhoods of Wentworth, Merebank and Lamontville - an area that bears the imprint of apartheid-era planning and a longer history of racial segregation. The level of pollution is high in Durban's industrial basin, as is the level of pollution-related ill-health. The photographs included in the exhibition are portraits of individual inhabitants of the area, with personal comments from the people portrayed. Notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
