Ralph Ndawo

Ralph Ndawo
South African photographer Ralph Ndawo (1932 – 1980) began his career as a darkroom assistant, also freelancing for the Golden City Post and Drum magazine. He rose to become Chief Photographer of the Post after joining the paper in 1966 and, when it closed in 1971, was transferred to Drum. In 1972, he joined the Rand Daily Mail – working for the publication from 1978 until his untimely death. Ndawo covered important events in South African history during this period, including the 1976 protests, Steve Biko’s funeral, and the Mandela family. His legacy also reflects feature and social documentary work, some which was published in Staffrider magazine. Ndawo’s work has recently been archived by the PLP.
