Gavin Furlonger

Gavin Furlonger’s extensive photographic career and portfolio spans over the last 40 years. After arriving in South Africa in 1968, Furlonger spent the majority of the 70’s working for leading agencies, covering fashion shoots and advertising assignments in Cape Town. He later began directing TV commercials in Johannesburg during the 80’s. In response to his increasing awareness of the diminishment of local South African analogue photographic practices and archives, Furlonger started a company named PAPA-SA (Photographic Archival & Preservation Association South Africa). He would also later open Gallery F, as a means to share pertinent and historic South African photography with the local public.
