There's some great shots in there. Some awesome creativity and amazing heart.
Love the first one for the character captured - a makeshift chair in front of a makeshift Coke sign.
Love the contemplative mood captured in pic 5.
Love the pride in the parents' faces and the obvious safety drawn from them by the little girl in pic 3.
Love the character in the last shot - it's just SO Cape Town.
GREAT work, all of them. Amazing colour. The shots truly capture the soul of the Cape.

They'd make a great book. I'd buy it.
Could make a few bucks for the project, make sure the good work continues.....

Hope you're getting some good video. Can't wait to see it.

Alex said...

Wow that's awesome. Really great to see you doing something for the greater good.

In a slightly (well OK nowhere near as amazing) way I'm putting on a pow wow/shootout for a whole bunch of photographers and models of different experience levels on the 25th of April.

The site is a derelict RAF base just North of Cambridge and is totally amazing. It has everything from decontamination chambers to old ball rooms. If you're back in the country it would be brill to have you along.

If you want to know more check out this link:

Take care,

Hi Drew,

Congratulations on the good work you are doing, the kids in our townships really need it. I heard about your stay in South Africa via twitter. I am an avid follower of strobist.com and found out about it via David's retweet.

I am a photography student myself at Prestige Academy, in Bellville. I know you have a lot on your hands and are quite busy doing what you came here to do (teach the kids in the townships) but I was wondering if you could maybe give our college a visit and give a short presentation/speech of sorts?

Hope to hear from you soon,
Keep safe,
David Ritchie
