My work has been selected for 'New African Photography Encounters in Bamako 2007' between Nov 23rd and Dec 23rd this year. Click here for more info.

This year's theme is 'Dans la Ville et au deLĂ ' (Inside/outside the City) This photo essay documented the horse and carts that collect scrap from across Cape Town. Under the flight path of jets flying in and out of Cape Town's International airport, and on busy main roads linking the residential and industrial townships of the Cape Flats, an old-fashioned transport business flourishes. There are more than 500 carthorses and carts at work in townships like Nyanga, Heideveld, Gugulethu and Khayelitsha.

The photo essay was completed with the support of the Research output of the University of the Western Cape.
