Travelling Light is a photographic book and exhibition reflecting 25 years of photographer Paul Weinberg’s journey. It is not intended to be a retrospective but something of the journey he has taken. He has witnessed the country take a full circle.

The full circle is a metaphor for living in times of apartheid to living in times of freedom. Full circle from the city to the land and all that is between. But the images are a lot to do with life that fell between the cracks. The full circle can be translated into the “rainbow nation” or a social miracle. But the “Rainbow Nation” mythology is misleading.

In his introduction he writes, “ Between the cracks, life continues with its pain and joy. During the “dark days”, apartheid shadowed me on all these journeys. It was always there consciously or not. It was in the lines of people’s faces or in the fascist bravado of military parades. Agricultural shows and numerous events echoed their presence. But it was the people I was looking at – watching how they reflected themselves and how I absorbed their reflections, how they danced with reality, how they made light in a dark space, how they embraced each other at great risk. ”
