Working on this project to give to my mother. Doing a collection of dance photos. My mother is a dancer. For her birthday, I wanted to give her something special. She’s been my biggest inspiration as an artist. I’m going to launch it sometime next week. Getting prints made and framed to give to her. This is one of the first finished photos.

"Big business largely snubbed the TRC. Few companies applied for amnesty, or disclosed their involvement in providing support to the apartheid regime." - Setumo Stone, Business Day 18 April 2014
As South Africans prepared to celebrate Freedom Day on the 27th April, marking the country’s first democratic election in 1994, and in the build-up to national elections on May 9th, Business Day reported that US businesses, Ford and IBM, lost a bid to stop victims from suing them in their own country - for allegedly aiding South Africa’s former apartheid regime.
In an another article in the Times of India this month, the Deputy Chair of the South African Human Rights Commission, said, “… mining companies, who benefited from South Africa’s labour system, did not pay compensation or even recognise their role in apartheid during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. They rejected Archbishop Tutu’s call for a minimal tax despite making millions at the cost of the land and people whose lives were destroyed.”
The role of business in supporting and benefiting from apartheid is evident in some startling images featured in Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life. The two here are:

I would like to extend Easter greetings to everyone celebrating today with this beautiful photograph of two women in Harlem on Easter Sunday 1947 by the legendary French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). My favorite fun fact about Mr. Cartier-Bresson is that he and Langston Hughes were roommates as young struggling artists in Mexico in the 1930s. Photo: Henri Cartier-Bresson/Magnum Photos.
