Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.


The other side

The edge of the township of Masiphumelele, very close to the beach villages of Kommetjie and Noordhoek in the Cape. According to Wikipedia, it has approximately 26000 inhabitants. Ameneties are scarce and 30-40% of the inhabitants are infected with HIV/Aids. I'm hesitant about whether to even post this caption, but as photographs tends to objectify and aestheticise, I will risk sounding like an armchair liberal.
