Jozi in June


Visited Johannesburg in June. Or as locals call it, Joburg or Jozi.
It was one of the most significant travels we’ve experienced.

There lies a haze over Jozi. An almost apocalyptic feeling that caused our minds to re-imagine it as the screen of a 1960’s sci-fi. Though it was hard to reconcile with the blatant contradictions in South Africas social structure, what stayed with us was the citys vast youth culture, and how it is not confined by social issues but instead transgresses all barriers.




Playing in my studio with collages and boards for upcoming shoots and had to make an insta-safe version of some of my favorite summer women straight from the sea in Matteau =)


Currently sorting through my desktop of a couple thousand images (its my worst place of organization!) and its got me thinking about observations of women and their nuances and what makes them unique.
