Faces of Blikkiesdorp. 
Blikkiesdorp is an informal settlement near Delft in Cape Town. It was initially supposed to be a temporary relocation settlement where more than half of gentrified Woodstock families find themselves but some families have been here for more than 15 years.

As the storm approaches in Cape Town, the majority of us are slightly excited that it'll come with some relief in rain. Most Capetonians in the #informalsettlement might not welcome it as much. Fears of floods and ultimately damages to their households. 
Brace yourselves... The Storm is coming.

Today we visited an informal Afrikaner settlement outside of Pretoria. The place had no name, just, plot 111. The chicken here, although posing fabulously, was a common animal found on most home's plots. This place reminded me of trailer parks back home but these people lived in far worse poverty and almost all were unemployed.

One person was killed when a fire destroyed 9 shacks in C Section, Duncan Village. As winter approaches the number of shack fires increases as most people use paraffin lamps and heaters to keep warm. With no fire gaps between shacks fires spread very easy. #iphone #shacks #fire #destroyed #informalsettlement #poor #

The dust mountain that’s just always there
Johannesburg - "The problem with this mountain is you can’t run away from it,” Ronnie Kubeka says.
He sits in the bed of a bakkie and sorts a pile of rotting food for his pigs. Gesturing to the pale yellow expanse of mine waste looming behind him, Kubeka says that in winter’s windy season, dust blankets the area.
Kubeka and other farmers in the Doornkop informal settlement near Snake Park, close to Roodepoort, wear masks to evade the dust and say their animals develop sores and other skin irritations when the wind blows mine waste onto them.
A shack fire breaks out in the Zamimpilo informal settlement. Poor living conditions complicate efforts to link mine waste to health issues.

This is Elise. She lives in an informal settlement in Woodstock, a diverse but fast-gentrifying area in central Cape Town. She invited me into her beautifully decorated wooden Wendy house earlier today, but as winter sets in this structure will get cold and probably wet inside. Look out for my upcoming story on housing and segregation in Cape Town for @guardian cities. #woodstock #capetown #southafrica #africa #housing #informalsettlement #journalism #journalist #photojournalism

School kids from Winnie Mandela informal settlement in Tembisa township finding hard to walk pass the muddy street after the rain.

It's amazing how these kids are spreading the importance of cleanliness from what they've learned in their school to their families and (hopefully) would change the behaviour of their neighbourhood for the better. Starting small is always good. #solidwastemanagement

Meet Moosa. He is originally from Soweto but moved into this squatter camp in Booysens to be closer to work. He is a gardener in the upmarket suburb of Houghton. The daily commute from from Soweto was too expensive and he was frequently in trouble for being late. He says it is much better now. The squatter camp is unfortunately over run with rats so he is dragging this bin of cement he has salvaged from outside a nearby cement yard to try to seal off his shack. He is a devout Muslim and was a bit annoyed that moving the cement had caused him to miss morning prayers. #Jozi #streetphotography #traintracks #squattercamp #informalsettlement

THE CASE OF CAÑADA REAL IN MADRID, SPAIN. 
This picture, showing debris of a recent demolition, was taken in Europe's so claimed biggest informal settlement: Cañada Real. The area previously served  as a "cañada real" - a royal cattle track - and became increasingly populated throughout the last century's second half. As a result of inner migration waves in 1950's/60's metropolises in Spain like Madrid, began to be swamped with informal settlements.
.
Cañada Real arose as a growing shelter for families, who couldn't access the formal housing market. It evolved into a small city, consisting of six sectors, which differ considerably in social structure, as well as in characteristics regarding construction material and infrastructure. Whereas some areas boast "common" buildings and purchase electricity and water, other sectors of Cañada Real coincide with UN-Habitat slum characteristics.

As a result of the authorities' passivity, Cañada Real accounts today of more than 8.000 inhabitans along aproximately 14 kilometers, trasversing three different municipalities within the Autonomous Community of Madrid. Consequently, finding a proper solution for the different parts of Cañada Real is highly complex. It arises the question of how Cañada Real could be fully integrated into the urban development of the different municipalities?
