Description

'A South African black man exposes in his own pictures and words the bitter life of his homeland today.'

This is one of those rare books that can change the way we think by revealing a truth of which we were unaware. The House of Bondage is the dwelling-place of the black people of South Africa, whose bitter life is one of the tragedies of our century. Ernest Cole has lived the tragedy as an inmate of the House for most of his twenty-seven years. A remarkably gifted photographer and an eloquent spokesman, he has recently exiled himself to expose the harsh realities of his homeland today. From his unique vantage point Cole sees every aspect of South Africa's degradation with a searching eye and a passionate heart.' With text by Thomas Flaherty and Ernest Cole.

First edition, published by Ridge Press/Random House, 1967
