A dying township hobby

BACK in the good old days it was exciting to see a man proudly hanging a camera around his neck and walking or cycling around the township taking photos.

BACK in the good old days it was exciting to see a man proudly hanging a camera around his neck and walking or cycling around the township taking photos.

It meant he could capture timeless memories, images which became valued possessions for many years.

But in this digital age, when almost everyone owns a camera, street photography is a dying, unnoticed profession.

Acknowledging and preserving this art will inspire young township dreamers and keep good role models in society. - Mamodima Monnakgotla
