George Hallet Biography

Photographer for the Nelson Mandela Photography Exhibit beginning 23 November 2011

George Hallet was born in Cape Town in 1942. He photographed District Six in Cape Town before its destruction under apartheid. In 1970 he left South Africa for Europe where he remained for two decades photographing South African artists in exile. Hallet returned to South Africa shortly after the release of Nelson Mandela. In 1994, he photographed the first democratic elections and was later commissioned to record the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. His work has been widely exhibited in South Africa and abroad. Hallet won a Hasselblad Award for outstanding Contributions to Photography (1980); a Golden Eye Award from World Press Photo (1995); and an award from the Cape Times for photo-journalistic excellence (1999). He is committed to passing on his skills to younger people and has taught photography at American, British, European and South African institutions. The South African National Gallery in Cape Town is working on a retrospective of George Hallet's work for next year.
