I always thought Mandela Square in Sandton was just a blatant attempt to cash in on the Mandela name. Then I noticed this scene where the great man seems to be smiling down on the children playing in the fountains. I imagine he might be happy with that as an afterlife. #johannesburg#mandela#sandton
I was wandering around central Joburg when this guy asked me for money for food. He looked hungry. A little down on his luck. I gave him money and asked if I could take his photo. He wasn't so happy about the trade I think. #streetphotography#johannesburg
Mr Victor Dlamini standing at the entrance to his studio and gallery in the old Fort on Constitution Hill. It is well worth visiting this fascinating man if you would like to see his collection of West African art, listen to a great selection of vinyl and view his portrait photography. Tell him I sent you.
I think this is the burnt out ruin of the old Dungeon Club in downtown Joburg. It was famous in the 1980's when I lived in Hillbrow. Am I correct? Who remembers this place? #blackandwhite#Jozi#gayclub#ruin#downtown
I really like the way parts of downtown #Jozi are being made safe and accessible. What is a bit disturbing though is how islands of wealth are being created. We sit in seats of privilege sipping artisanal coffee while beyond the bars that protect us the poor walk past. If looks and feels like a zoo but I think it's me that is in the cage. #maboneng#jozi#johannesburg#downtown
