A photographic essay, centred around day-to-day life in one of South Africa’s oldest Townships. A subtle investigation of an extreme socio-economic crisis, which affects the residents of Langa on a daily basis - the story of indefinite struggle and survival.
An in-depth glimpse into ‘The Forgotten Township’ – largely abandoned by government, the skeleton of Langa is slowly decaying, as unemployment and crime increase and living conditions become more hopeless.
However, the heart of Langa still beats strong – with a sense of humanity and community that will rival any Suburban area of Cape Town. Circumstances, which would undoubtedly cripple most leafy Suburban residents, fail to break the core-spirit of Langa’s people. It’s this ‘keep on keeping on’ attitude that makes the men and women of Langa some of the strongest and resilient people in the country.
