About this piece

2021 – Timber (informal settlement), South Africa


On each on my trips into Timber I often overhear conversations through paper thin walls. When I saw the boy, eyes searching through a hole in the front door of his home I could hear his mother shouting at him from within. Her voice sounded concerned and scared. Every so often her voice faded as the pitch varied as she moved around the shack.

“Don’t you go out there Amos, I’m watching you.” The boy asks, Why mom?” She answers, “Because there are rapists and murderers . . . ” She stops, thinks about her child’s innocence. In a few years he will know the truth of the world they both live in. Then the boy asks, “What are rapists mom?

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.
