Soccer City South AfricaeBook - 2012
Shot during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, this 13-part series about life and soccer in township South Africa during the first ever World Cup to be held in Africa followed five subjects, three of whom were in their teens. Race. Class. Passion. Crime. Poverty. Faith. Through five individual portraits, we witness the ongoing transition from an apartheid South Africa and the many repercussions personified within a township largely misunderstood even by South Africans. High-level distribution built widespread awareness of the realities of life in South African townships.
