Cape Town for Suitcase Magazine

Cape Town is a city of contrasts: From dull to vivid colours, mountains to golden beaches, concrete to lush nature, frowns to smiles, heaving crowds to empty loneliness, movement to stillness, and glimmering wealth to heart-breaking poverty. It is a difficult city to understand; its politics, society, people, structure, and how everything fits together. On my travels there, I photographed small glimpses of peoples lives; boys playing with abandoned furniture, a couple walking home arm in arm, a child falling from a bicycle, a school girl waiting in front of a statement of ideology. As an outsider looking in, I tried to record details, simple moments captured in an attempt to touch the surface of this complicated but beautiful place.
