An occasional journal of pictures and words.
Identity in the Suburbs, Jozi

Under shady trees, I pass close by a security gate. A deep-throated bark stirs my adrenal gland.

A dog in a Springbok jersey, number 14. Boerboel, muscular, cut. Ray Mordt, I thought without hesitation.

Overgrown sidewalk, man in sunglasses and lumber jacket walking towards me, his hands are in his pockets.

As he nears to within touching distance, I say “Eyta.”

He says ‘Howzit.’

    Hi Mr Marinovich, i am busy doing a thesis for my degree in Graphic Design, and we got to choose our Topics, after watching the movie The Bang Bang Club, i was so inspired and my Thesis is, Photojournalism, During and After Apartheid. Reading and Researching about you and the Bang Bang Club has been so inspirational and mind blowing. You are a great influence in my thesis and aspiring Photographic career:)
