Photography Education Trust

The Photography Education Trust is a registered public benefit trust to encourage and nurture photography as a response to South Africa’s vibrant, conflicted and constantly changing society, as a means of creating mutual understanding; thereby assisting in the evolution of a better society for all.

It aims to provide training to aspirant photographers, including aspirant photographers from disadvantaged backgrounds, to equip them with the attitudes, experience, values and technical skills necessary to enable them to find employment or create self-employment while pursuing the ethos described above.

The Photography is a registered Public Benefit Organisation (including Sect 18A) approved by the Commissioner for the South African Revenue Service.

The Photography Education Trust was established by David Goldblatt, Mfundi Vundla and John Fleetwood.
