Johannesburg is full of culture, people, old buildings, renovated buildings making it a place where there’s so much to see and explore. Here’s a look at the different buildings in our city – old and new. Giant artworks are usually displayed on the city buildings; the amazing graffiti livens up our streets and make you want to turn to each corner to see what’s around it.
I have been experimenting with Lomography for quite some time now and I’m currently on a mission to complete my architecture portfolio with some interesting travel images. This is why I decided to photograph my own “home city”. My boyfriend and I decided to spend an afternoon out and about in our city to capture all the hustle and bustle that makes it interesting.
We jumped in the car and started snapping away as we crossed over the Nelson Mandela Bridge. The bridge runs over around 30-40 railway tracks. It connects the suburb of Braamfontein to the beauty that is Newtown. As you cross over you can see an old train station to your right – a place that we encountered on our first day of exploring. We parked our car and took a stroll towards the structure and snapped away. There are so many of these hidden treasures within the streets of the city that are just waiting to be found. We then went on auto pilot and went wherever the car felt like going – with no specific destination in mind. We followed the graffiti and art trails and stopped whenever we felt inspired to explore certain areas a bit more.
After an afternoon of exploring and as the sun was going down, we headed out to meet some friends for “sundowners” and microwave popcorn at the top of one of the newly-renovated buildings in Braamfontein. This overlooked all the paths we had journeyed along that day and all the ones we are still yet to conquer. For me, Johannesburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world – both for its buildings and its people. Come and pay us a visit in the “City of Gold”.
In Reuben Wu's world, analogue and digital clank together to make irresistible synthpop. Much to our glee, he does the same with still and moving photography. His new project "Ascension" displays his brand of visual surrealism we've come to love.
Lumiere London is a brand new light festival celebrating some of the most iconic streets and buildings in various locations around the city. It runs from January 14th - 16th and is free to attend. There will be installations, videos, interactive pieces and projections, all coming to life at night.

We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
We’ve all heard those cliché sayings about travel before, the ones that tell you it expands your mind and allows you to see the world in new ways. Well, they’re all true!

In 2015 we had been fortunate enough to talk with photographers, with practices and insights unique from one another, from all over the globe. And not only were we able to see their works; we were also able to dig a little deeper and find out what makes each one of them tick. In this special recap, we present a handpicked selection of insightful quotes from some of our most memorable interviews this year.
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
