CAPE TOWN – The Department of International Relations and Cooperation has confirmed the release of South African cameraman Adil Bradlow, who was detained in Egypt.

Bradlow and three of his colleagues were taken into custody while working for Al Jazeera in Cairo earlier this week.

The reasons for their detainment are still unclear.

The department’s Clayson Monyela says, “The department has received information from our people in Egypt that Bradlow has been released by the authorities. When we spoke to him earlier he was on his way to the airport. It’s good for his family and we’re relieved he’s on his way.”

Curated by Siona O’ Connell the University of Cape Town’s Centre for Curating the Archive (CCA), Martyrs, Saints and Sellouts brings together, for the first time, the photographs of anti-apartheid photographers, Benny Gool, Zubeida Vallie and Adil Bradlow, who as young photographers and friends, were to be found with their cameras documenting apartheid South Africa. Their impressive collections show us now, some nineteen years after the first democratic elections in South Africa, a vivid narrative of violence, loss and injuries, the reverberations of which are subdued in the rhetoric of the post-apartheid landscape.
