Orania is not located along any main route. In the barren Northern Cape in South Africa, somewhere on the R369 between Hopetown and Petrusville lies this town that has been steeped in controversy since its establishment as a nation state exclusively for white Afrikaners. Orania was founded in 1990 by the son-in-law of Hendrik Verwoerd, the architect of apartheid. It is a town of unusual combinations: a thousand white people and many thousands of pecan trees; the arid Karoo and the green banks of the Orange River; the ideology of some and the opportunism of others.

People wonder about Orania. What is it like? What type of person would live there? Are there entrance gates? Is it neo-apartheid? Photographer Michael Hammond aims his camera at the people of Orania, while accompanying narratives by writer Hanlie Retief provide a glimpse into their lives.
