Arthur Bolton was a radiologist who settled in KwaZulu Natal after the Second World War. He was keen photographer whose work is predominently about Zulu culture in the field as well in a studio. He also worked with the Killie Campbell Museum in Durban. This body of work which has been looked after by his daughter Gail Catlin has recently come to light.
It reflects his close interest in Zulu people from the period 1940-1960 as well his documentation on his family. These two worlds, the outside and the inside represent a very interesting dialogue running through this collection.
