BOZZA-JHB,Soweto and Alexandra

For the launch of the Bozza Network I was commissioned by SJ ARTISTS to photograph portraits of people in the different communities that are making a difference. The portraits had to be very close but without looking like an ID photo,so things got fun. I got to meet many incredible people and explored areas i never would have seen without them. Thanks so much to SJ ARTISTS and the Bozza Ambassadors for making this into a great project.
we landed up with around 120 portraits for Soweto and Alexandra, these were then pasted around the communities.

Here’s a of a few of my favorite portraits and some photos of the pasting sessions.
Hope the low res does justice

PASTE-a street exhibition (video)

PASTE. A street art exhibition curated by Shani Judes of SJ ARTISTS and Between 10and5 .
18 local artists were selected to design, illustrate or photograph work around the theme of Khayelitsha Culture. The work was turned into large scale wheat pastes and was pasted around Khayelitsha and the inner city of Cape Town.

The aim: to take the exhibition out of the gallery space and into the streets of both city and township. Spreading the art into the different cultures and allowing the greater community access.

Its was awesome to document this project, the people involved and the people who welcomed us into their communities were incredible.I hope whoever watches this video enjoys it as much as i enjoyed making it.

Showcasing a city honest about its past and present issues and committed to improving lives through design innovation.
