Truth And Lies
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established to investigate more than thirty years of human rights violations under apartheid. Jillian Edelstein returned to her native South Africa to photograph the work of this committee and was present at some of the most important hearings, including that of Winnie Mandela. In Truth and Lies, portraits of those who testified are accompanied by their stories. The result is a powerful and moving record of the atrocities committed under apartheid and the fight to make the truth known.
