Laurence Hamburger, ‘Frozen Chicken Train Wreck¬†(co-published by Chopped Liver Press and Ditto Press 2013)

“I began collecting South African tabloid posters in 2008 with no other purpose than to preserve them. I thought they were funny, clever¬†and true. Composed in a local vernacular of shebeen English, these statements are part of the texture of our urban fabric; so familiar as to almost disappear. The newspapers themselves were not keeping an archive, and however ephemeral they might seem I thought there was a relevance in them that was not being recognised; something uniquely South African.”
