Impact Visuals sold pictures taken of the anti-apartheid movement in the United States by independent photographers across the county. Impact Visuals also sold photographs taken of the struggles for independence in Namibia and against apartheid in South Africa.

Justice and Peace

'Justice and Peace' was formed in response to Vatican II, Pope Paul VI setting up the Pontifical Commission for justice and peace in 1967. A justice and peace group was founded in Johannesburg in 1973/4. ' Justice and Peace' was keenly aware that Apartheid had been a key characteristic of societal imbalances. Apart from its primary focus which was to raise awareness in the Catholic Community, Justice and Peace worked closely with both local and international organisations (religious and lay) who were committed to transforming society through justice and reconciliation.

Domestic Workers

The photographs were used for an Afrapix exhibition entitled "Domestic Workers", with photographs by Giselle Wulfsohn, Paul Weinberg, Santu Mofokeng, Dave Hartman and Guy Tillim.

They are images of domestic workers at work, during their time off, in their own homes, and attending Centres where they learned sewing and other skills. Also included are photos of meetings of the South African Domestic Workers Union (SADWU), which was formed in November 1986, combining five domestic workers unions to one strong national trade union.

Beyond the Barricades

Beyond the Barricades: Popular Resistance in South Africa in the 1980s

This exhibition (Editors, Omar Badsha, Gideon Mendel and Paul Weinberg) is an important collection of photographs by twenty South African photographers, mainly from the photographic collective, Afrapix. Both, the exhibition and subsequent book, have become an indispensable anthology of popular resistance in South Africa during the 1980’s. The collection highlights one of the longest and bloodiest periods of political resistance to apartheid, a time of mass mobilization and brutal repression when taking of images was often a matter of life and death.
