Khumaloâ€™s work has been published in both local and international newspapers, for example The Observer (UK), New York Times, New York Post, and The Sunday Independent (UK). In September 2004, Khumaloâ€™s work was honoured by a solo exhibition of his lifeâ€™s work at the 59th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, which was well received by critics.
Khumalo, despite being older, still works professionally. To ensure that future South African photographers have the adequate means to improve their skills, Khumalo opened a photographic school in Diepkloof, Soweto.
This school provides all aspiring photographers with the necessary training, and ensures that are not hindered by a lack of opportunity. A nine-month course has therefore been designed to educate photographers from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, and is supported by companies like Daimler Chrysler and IBM.
Khumalo’s body of work is a testament to his perseverance as a photographer during the struggle, and his dedication. His photography is representative of the resistance that gained South Africa its freedom, and is displayed in the Alfred Khumalo Museum in Soweto.
