I’m a third-generation 50-something South African. I was raised in the apartheid years and have found the changes since 1994 fascinating, exciting, exhilarating and sometimes heartbreaking and frightening. For friends and family abroad, both ex-South African and others, I find myself wanting to document the ordinary, everyday experiences of ordinary, everyday life in this complex, kaleidoscope country. My responses are, of course, subjective, but I try to record things as dispassionately as possible. Sometimes the material is so uplifting and encouraging, it’s easy. At other times it’s not. But whatever the story, I aim to tell it just like it is – from my perspective.
