Johannesburg is an eerie metropolis, haunted by the ghosts of the colonial and the apartheid past and the uncertainties of the present. There is a supernatural charge to the deep shadows cast by brutalist skyscrapers, the alien worlds of abandoned mine dumps, the incandescent light searing off its koopies, the concrete tributaries of sidewalk and high walls.

Imbuing these spaces with colour and life are the artists and creators, using their work and personal style as statements of beauty and mystery. Their hair, their clothes, the backgrounds they pose in speak of a potent new mythology, creating new gods and spirits that could only come from this time and place.
