Titled ‘A House in Harrington Street’, Nicholas Eppel’s debut solo exhibition reflects three years in the life of long-time Harrington Street resident, 68 years old Elizabeth Barrett. Eppel’s photographs document Elizabeth’s house and life, which stand as a testimony to community living against the rapid gentrification of the inner city. Elizabeth recently made headlines by saving 14 children from her burning house, which now stands in ruins.
The exhibition, which is sponsored by the Centre for Curating the Archive, UCT, and supported by the Cape Town School of Photography and Orms Pro Photo Warehouse, consists of 30 images: still lives, portraits and intimate moments of the household prior to the fire.
Venue: The Cape Town School of Photography, 4th Floor 62 Roeland Street (cnr Harrington St)
Exhibition Opening: 27 February 2014 at 6pm
Exhibition Duration: 27 February to 28 March 2014
