South Africa

For 2 weeks straight, I drove along South Africa's Eastern Cape and witnessed extreme contrasts in the land and its people. Within minutes, I drove from fancy vineyards set in abundant nature to dry townships where electricity is a luxurious privilege. This resilient nation who fought through apartheid and racial segregation, has now the opportunity to educate the younger generation in hope of a fresh start. This series is the result of the many visits I made to elementary schools and villages where I tried to understand the South African way of life and document this new generation that is filled with hope and acceptance.
