Paul Weinberg was born in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, in 1956. He was a founding member of Afrapix, the collective photo agency that documented resistance to apartheid in the 1980s.
Weinberg’s images have been widely exhibited and published. In addition to his own work examining people, cultures, and human environments, he has photographed on assignment for newspapers, magazines, and non-governmental organizations. In 1993, Weinberg won a Mother Jones International Fund for Documentary Photography Award for his portrayal of the fisher folk of Kosi Bay on South Africa’s northern Natal coast.
Weinberg has taught photography at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. He is the Curator at the Centre for Curating the Archive at the University of Cape Town. The Then & Now exhibit is a product of his vision and perseverance.
