About this piece

2020 – Naledi, South Africa

Snap, Crackle, and Pop!

This overtly suspicious Naledi resident like 99% of the informal settlement cannot afford armed response. To overcome this issue he uses his ingenuity. He has surrounded his home with hundreds of 5-litre bottles filled with rain. He has also erected razor wire fencing. But an accomplished thief would have no problem with this challenge. He’d simply cover the cutting wire with a few thick blankets and clamber over.

Ah, but once over he’d get the surprise of his life. On landing, the bottles would snap, crackle, and explode warning not just the household but the surrounding neighbours. I suggested to his neighbour that maybe he should put up a sign that read: WARNING: SULPHURIC ACID IN BOTTLES. He laughed and said the water was also for drinking and washing.

All Profits Donated

OPENPAGE-Studio are donating all nett profits from the sales of “Inheritance” Collectors Prints: (Limited 6th Edition) to Save The Children.

Although these photographs are of both Children and Adults, don’t forget these Adults were once Children, and maybe the circumstances they find themselves now could have been improved in their childhood and upbringing?  This is not just a South African matter, it reaches to all corners of the world.  So we will be splitting our donations jointly between Save The Children – South Africa and Save The Children – International.

We thank the wounderful People and Children from the Informal Settlements of South Africa for participating in this project, and Mike Rossi in its creative creation.  Please give your support.
