Photographs from the Frontline

In collaboration with OXFAM

Two exhibitions of photographs were specially prepared for Frontline States by Ricardo Rangel (1924-2009), director at the School of Photography in Maputo, Mozambique, and Enfoto in Luanda, Angola.

The broad themes included development and self-reliance; social, cultural and political subjects; and the effects of South Africa’s policy of destabilisation.

They were exhibited with Art from the Frontline at the Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum, Kelvingrove, and at the Working Class Movement Library in Salford. The photographs from Mozambique, including those by Carlos Cardosa, Martinho Fernando, Lucas Ganhao, Ricardo Rangel and Mário Saíde, were officially opened by Winnie Mandela at The City Centre in Dublin.
