About this title


The images in this volume are but one aspect. The poetry, interviews, quotes, history, background pieces and graphic design all weave together to convey the texture of the experience of Cape Town's shack dwellers. Using only available light, Craig Fraser left the interiors unstyled to capture their "true beauty". But more striking is the dignity to be found in the dusty streets of South Africa's shack-lands. While these people obviously don't take pleasure in the poverty in which they live, they stand proud in the face of it. These are people who are doing the best they can with the little they have and, in the process, coming up with something aesthetically unique and fresh to offer the world.

About the Author:
