Having left South Africa at the age of four as a political refugee with his parents, photographer Koto Bolofo returned tohis home country with his wife in 1992, two years after Nelson Mandela had been released from prison. Bolofo got freeaccess to the notorious and by now deserted prison of Robben Island, where Mandela had been held for the majorityof the twenty-seven years of his confinement in a cell of barely 6 square metres in Section B. The photographer and hiswife eagerly began documenting the site's abandoned interiors and surroundings, dreading the prison's potential closure.Meanwhile, it was converted into a well-frequented museum in 1997 and included on the World Heritage List byUNESCO in 1999.The black and white photographs of this volume conspicuously favour close-up depictions of details as opposed togeneral views: leftover items, barbed wire fences, spacious dormitories viewed through a spyhole, the key in the lockto Mandela's cell which is so tiny it cannot be taken as a whole-all this is conveying the gloomy sense of claustrophobiaand suppression that characterise the place. The camera is constantly searching for the few rays of light that penetratethe ubiquitous grimness and silence of cruelty.
