George Hallett, photographer 1942 – 2020

1 July 2020 —The New Dark Age

George Hallet, one of a group of immensely talented (and, I might add, brave) South African photographers who documented Apartheid, and post-Apartheid South Africa, died today after a long illness. In 2012 George came to London for a brief stayover, on his way to somewhere else and we hung out for a short time.  I took him to St. Paul’s in the City, where the Occupy movement had set up a tent city in the square in front of the Cathedral.

A beautiful human being and thankfully, he has left us an indelible and moving record of the strength of the human spirit.

Hamba Kahle, George
