Rainbow Transit, a photography book by Per-Anders Pettersson launches at The Castle of Good Hope
In the spring of 1994, Swedish-born Per-Anders Pettersson arrived in South Africa for the first time to cover the historic election in which Nelson Mandela was to become South Africa’s first black president. Thus began Pettersson’s love affair with South Africa. Over the next two decades, he explored the “Rainbow Nation”, questioning the complex realities of daily life in one of the success stories on the African continent.

Castle of Good Hope, c/o Darling and Buitenkant Streets, Cape Town at 6pm.
