Constance Stuart and Friend, 1936-1949. She is standing behind a wall decorated with geometric designs. Next to her is a woman. Both of them are holding cameras. Photograph, 1936-1949.
Between 1936 and 1949, Constance Stuart devoted much of her spare time to photograph the Ndebele, who lived in settlements near Pretoria. During the week, Stuart operated her studio in town; on weekends she drove to the nearby settlements. She frequently returned to the same places, and became familiar with many Ndebele women. Stuart created portraits, recorded Ndebele architecture, and documented activities, among them wall painting and mat making.
There is one 10 1/2 x 8 cm. black and white vintage print mounted on a secondary support material that is 14 x 11 1/2 cm. of this negative in the Constance Stuart Larrabee Collection. EEPA produced an 8x10 study print for reference purposes.
