There's an article on The New Stateman called "Photographing the new South Africa," which touches on Johannesburg, and specifically, my part of town.
It's interesting, in that it tells a whole lot of suburban history I didn't know about. It also mentions my suburb directly, though not accurately or in a complimentary manner. But what I found very interesting is that the visual representation was of old, decrepit buildings. That is not a representation of my suburb or even of the new South Africa.
It's irritating when a journalist picks portions of a story that fits his story agenda and leaves out some of the facts that could balance them out. I'm not saying those buildings don't exist, but they are certainly not all there is to the area he's depicting! Actually, they don't even make up 20% of the area. Gah!
Read the piece yourself and tell me what you think.
