Farewell to a powerful visual archivist of jazz

It is with sadness that we learn of the death of photographer Peter McKenzie. McKenzie’s images added immeasurably to the historical record we have of South African struggle and culture: pictures made with the spirit of a comrade in that struggle, as well as a knowledgeable observer – something he also conveyed in his ongoing work as a teacher, and his curatorial skill as a photographic gallerist. (see http://www.sahistory.org.za/people/peter-mckenzie  )An appreciation of his work and contribution is long overdue. Hamba Kahle.
