GALLERY: Johannesburg in black and white

Words and Photos by Chelsea Haith

Sandton lounges against Soweto’s hustle, the two neighbourhoods sprawling side-by-side in the geography of Johannesburg, South Africa’s most strife-ridden city. The legacy of the racial segregation during the apartheid era is plain to see on the face of a map. South Africa’s history is itself grayscale; discoloured by oppression and the fraught, untidy resolutions of the project of reconciliation the country is currently undergoing. This collection of photographs intends to highlight the nebulous transformation of the city by looking at the buildings which emphasises the concrete, permanence of this place. The photographs are uncaptioned to allow the images to speak for themselves.
