Alon Skuy was born and educated in Johannesburg, and studied photography at The Market Photo Workshop. He began work as a photographer for The Star, The Saturday Star and the Sunday Independent; and later moved on to be Chief Photographer of The Times, and Sunday Times.
Skuy’s career has been defined by his depth and range as a news and feature photographer, notably, his coverage of the 2012 Marikana Massacre, the most lethal use of force by South African security forces against civilians since the Soweto Riots of 1976.
In 2008, Skuy was awarded the Ruth First Fellowship at the University of the Witwatersrand, for which he produced the photographic essay ‘Living Inside a Bridge’. He is the recipient of numerous local and international awards, including, among others, World Press Photo, as well as multiple honours in Pictures of the Year International, in which he was named Photographer of the Year, Local, in 2020.
Skuy has exhibited his work on xenophobia at the historic Constitution Hill, and a selection of his and Oatway’s images remain on permanent exhibition at the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre.
James Oatway is an independent South African photographer. Formerly the Chief Photographer and Picture Editor of the Sunday Times, he has covered many important stories in South Africa and abroad and has a special interest in telling under-reported stories in Africa. His work centres around themes of political and social inequality and people affected by conflict.
In 2018 his Red Ants project won the prestigious Visa d’or Feature Award at the Visa Pour l’image Photojournalism Festival in Perpignan, France. On 18 April 2015, he photographed a fatal attack by South African men on Mozambican migrant Emmanuel Sithole. The images sparked outrage and made international headlines.
His work has received various international awards including multiple Pictures of the Year International (POYi) awards. In 2015 Oatway was named the South African Journalist of the Year. His work has been published internationally in The Guardian, Stern, Internazionale, Le Monde, TIME, Harper’s Magazine, Paris-Match, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The LA Times and others.
