Image by Constance Stuart Larrabee. | Born in England, and raised in South Africa, Larrabee documented South Africa's tribes throughout the 1930s and 40s, including the Zulu, Ndebele, Lovedu, Swazi, Sotho, Transkei, and Bushmen. Such images, given the (colonial) context, begs questions of otherness, of gaze, of positioning, of distance and relationship between subject and photographer.
