Jurgen Schadeberg at Pasadena Central Library

In recognition of World AIDS Day, the southern California premiere of the photographic exhibition 'South Africa: A Nation in Transformation' opened at Pasadena Central Library. The exhibit, presented by Altadena-based Art AIDS Art, features the work of 80-year-old Jurgen Schadeberg, a pioneer in southern African photography. The images capture 60 years of South African history. The exhibit also includes contemporary photography by Pasadenans and young South Africans, along with contemporary handcrafts and fabric.

Art AIDS Art, a nonprofit organization, promotes education and sustainable economic development through the arts. Founded in 2003 by Pasadena educators, the group serves AIDS-impacted women and children through literacy and health programs and income-generating projects in Cape Town, South Africa.
