Featured on the cover of this issue, Dale Yudelman’s career in photography has led him through two eras of South African history and across several continents. Born in Johannesburg, Yudelman’s career started early with him landing his first job in 1979 as Staff Photographer at South Africa’s largest daily newspaper The Star while still in his teens. This was a time of intense social and political turmoil and Yudelman worked simultaneously on press photography for The Star and his own work in the suburbs of Johannesburg exploring life under apartheid. Working abroad in both London and Los Angeles, Yudelman returned to a democratic South Africa in 1996 after ten years away. Since his return, his work from the ongoing series Reality Bytes have been featured in various shows in South Africa, Europe and the US.

He currently lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa
