A Nomad’s Harvest: a retrospective of photographs by George Hallett, cover aspects of a career spanning more than half a century. The works on show are from the collection of George Hallett and augmented by a comprehensive display of biographical information, as well as, book and record covers designed by Hallett.
Included on this exhibition, amongst others, are recognisable images of Hout Bay, District Six, the Bo-Kaap, as well as immigrants and gypsies in London. His series of portraits of exiled South African writers, artists and musicians in London and France are of special interest.
Throughout his career, Hallett has conveyed positive images of humanity. His work is invariably infused with the warmth of humanity – his vision untrammeled by fallacious concepts around race and colour. His intention to always ‘photograph the beautiful things in life,’ a testament to an affirmation of the life-enhancing qualities he strives to convey and concentrate on in his work.
