The white squatters camp at Krugersdorp has grown onto the side of a much larger, blacks only township. These images were taken in the ‘transition area’ between the two settlements. Despite being there to photograph the white residents, I did take a lot of photos of the neighbouring black kids too.
‘Friday 16th March – Driving back through Pretoria I see an immaculately dressed black woman crossing the road, her obviously expensive designer clothes compliment her flawless complexion. From a distance, it looks as though she has a hat on, but as we get closer, I realise that she has a well stuffed, brown and beige Louis Vuitton shoulder bag perfectly balanced on top of her head.’
All images made using a Pentax 67II with 105mm 2.4 lens. Film stock is Kodak Portra 160
