Kliptown

Established in 1891, Kliptown is the oldest part of Soweto, a southwestern township in South Africa. The local market remains strongly rooted in its historical origins and cultural practices. The images on the left display an arial view of Kliptown’s busiest market and the setup of market stand 45. These images have a formal composition highlighting the structure, shapes and primary colours found throughout the suburbs. This is complemented by the portraits, of a boy and man, personalizing Kliptown’s roots.
