The J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice and University Collections cordially invite you to the exhibition of 'J.M. Coetzee: Photographs from Boyhood'.

The exhibition showcases Nobel Laureate J.M. Coetzee's youthful foray into photography, when he attempted to capture 'the moment when truth revealed itself'. Offering intriguing glimpses of Coetzee's childhood in Cape Town in the mid-1950s, these images demonstrate how deeply photography shaped his creative development.

The exhibition will be on display until 5 December 2018 in the Ira Raymond Room. Access to the exhibition is between 2.00 - 3.00pm Monday to Friday, and between 3.00 - 5.00pm on 21 November. Please note the Ira Raymond Room will not be accessible all day on 27 November. The exhibition may be viewed at any other time if the room is free. A timetable is displayed by the door.
