On view are 80 black-and-white prints by Constance Stuart Larrabee, an American photographer born in South Africa, with captions from the classic novel Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton. The photographs and captions are united for the exhibition almost four decades after the photographer and author collaborated on a photographic portfolio depicting the people and the land that inspired the novel. (The title of the exhibition, a conventional farewell in Zulu, is found throughout Paton's book.)
