Imizamo Yethu

Hout Bay, South Africa

Imizamo Yethu Township is a sprawling warren of ramshackle huts clustered together with newly erected blockhouses built by a volunteer army of Irish Labourers. My brief was to photograph the buildings and the week in progress, but in fairness, these are the images that stuck in my head.

The residents, having little to nothing in regards of possessions, were some of the most giving and friendliest I have had the pleasure of meeting.
