Photographer's Note

There's a lot of Zimbabweans in South Africa, escaping their tyrannic government and the corruption that keeps the country under unbearable poverty and human rights violations.

While the population is peaceful, friendly, curious to meet foreigners and more then keen to have their photo taken, some thugs hired by the government interpose themselves and chase away foreigners to prevent documenting their situation in every day contexts, whether at the market or on the streets.

I had to drive 45 minutes away from the capital to be able to photograph people, without having to get authorization.

With constant power cuts, people rely on wood to warm themselves and for cooking, causing deforestation.
