Although no longer official policy, apartheid's ghost still lives on in South Africa. "Interior Relations" is a collection of photography enhanced by an essay from Sindiwe Magona. Coller recalls his own privileged upbringing and the housekeepers he often regarded as family, and how in spite of that, they remained second class. Capturing their soul with expertly done full color photography, a very powerful story is told. "Interior Relations" is an excellent pick for social issues-oriented photography collections, a fine choice for libraries or the coffee table.
