Constance Stuart Larrabee Photographs of African Tribes/Graucho and the Native Girls
“We took pictures of the native girls, but they weren’t developed. . . we’re going back next week.”
The English-born photographer Constance Stuart Larrabee is known for two distinct bodies of work: her black and white prints of South Africa’s tribal people (Zulu, Ndebele, Lovedu, Swazi, Sotho, Transkei, and Bushmen) – produced in the ’30s and ’40s – and her Life magazine-style photo-journalism in which she documented the liberation of Europe from the Nazis.
