On the left is Albie Sachs, who lost an arm and an eye in a car-bomb attack in the 80's, and is the main mover behind the wonderful art collection - much of which is donated by artists such as William Kentridge, Marlene Dumas and Karel Nel, as they have a very limited budget to buy art.
Workers at the court - cooks, cleaners, secretaries - and Judge Yvonne Mokgoro - form a talented group of swaying, swinging singers that entertained us in between speeches. Justice Sachs gesticulates wildly with what's left of his arm, as he introduces some of the artists that could make it to the launch - Karel Nel, and I'm not sure who that is with the baby - I was too engrossed in capturing the scene. Bongi is Albie's P.A., who wore a wig resplendant with the colours of the SA flag.
I'm still not comfortable with sketching in public - though I was very discreetly at the back - my heart was thumping throughout and the sketches are very, well, sketchy.
