Alice Mertens (1915 -2001) was a Namibian-born photographer who travelled extensively through Southern Africa to photograph and study the scenery, wildlife, and indigenous peoples of Southern Africa. In the above photographs, Mertens captured the Xhosa people in the Transkei, focusing on the traditional costumes, beadwork and customs of the Xhosa culture. In collaboration with Joan Broster, Merterns beautifully captured the Gcaleka, Tembu, Pondo, Bomvana and Fingo peoples of the Eastern Cape which have been published in their book entitled African Elegance.
