Travelling light

‘Apartheid shadowed me on all these journeys. It was always there, whether I was conscious of it nor not – in the hardship etched into people’s faces, the bravado of military parades, the pomp and splendour of agricultural shows, and numerous other events. But I always focused on the people – watching how they projected themselves in front of my camera, how they danced with reality, how they made light in the dark spaces, how they embraced each other across the gulfs at great risk.’
