Photographer's Note

The little town of Pilgrims Rest in Mpumalanga, South Africa, was founded soon after gold was discovered in the Pilgrims Creek in 1873. The valley yielded rich gold deposits and by the end of that year there were around 1500 prospectors working in the area.

Whilst most of the buildings in the town have been restored this dilapidated old prospectors shack is situated off the beaten track, away from the popular tourist haunts.
