Mostly black prominent bones of person's face highlighted in white; In eyes words "whites only"
A striking poster by Rafael Enríquez Vega and Victor Manuel Navarrete supporting the apartheid cause utilizes only black and white. The poster features the image of a black South African turning as if looking into a camera. The poster utilizes strong shadow, giving it a sense of drama and intensity appropriate to convey the seriousness of the movement to put an end to apartheid. In the iris of the person’s eyes appears the message, “whites only”, which reflects the hostility that he sees towards black South Africans like himself. (Katie McCorkle, Class of 2019)
