Dale Yudelman’s career in photography has led him through two eras of South African history as well as across several continents. Born in Johannesburg, and inspired by creative parents, he began photographing at a young age under the tutelage of his father.
He was barely out of his teens in 1979 when he started working as a staff photographer for The Star Newspaper. In 1986 he moved to London, working as a freelance photographer for various newspapers and magazines. Returning to a newly democratic South Africa in 1996, he began collaborating with artist Arlene Amaler-Raviv. Together they produced three major exhibitions and a number of commissions – their most recent; ‘Livestock’ was exhibited at the 8th Havana Biennale in Cuba.
Yudelman then ventured into uncharted territory drawing on his photojournalism background and a growing interest in digital technology. The resulting series ‘Reality Bytes’ are works that reclaim and freeze the emotional content of daily experience rather than merely regurgitating actual events. A number of projects followed – including ‘ I am…’ , a portrayal of the ongoing plight of refugees in South Africa. His most recent series ‘Life under Democracy’ was the winner of the inaugural Ernest Cole Award – the country’s most prestigious prize for social documentary photography.
Yudelman’s work is a consequence of a studied eye, brokered over thirty years of incessant image making. Enthralled with the many aspects, nuances and dimensions of reality – his images are a manifistation of how modern photography is able to escape the bounds of the ‘record’ – creating an authentic and evocative account of recent times.
