The bulk of these images where produced for an exhibition in France on African cities. They were done in the year 2000, at the height of the transformation of Johannesburg, when the streets were both vibrant and dangerous. Still, I found the city as exciting as always and the process fascinating in which almost the entire white population fled the city in the matter of a few years as black people who had previously been excluded from living in the city poured in.

The city is now finding its new voice and feet as it begins to stabilize and thrive.
