About this piece

2020 – Snake Park, South Africa


This forlorn looking dog attracted my attention. The pooch inheritance was to be a servant and guard dog to a junkyard dealer. The owner, like most, only saw the dog as a means to protect his scrap metal and probably illegal copper stash. I walked over to see if the animal had a name tag.

Through the fence I saw there was no shiny imprint that displayed the owner’s love, like Milo, Bella, or Patchy, my best friend. The pooch woofed his warning, and flexed its muscles. But its sad face pleads for freedom, which is just a stone’s throw over the Hottentot Holland Mountains behind him where the middle class farmers and the bourgeoisie spoil their animals. The mutt’s legacy like all those around him was being born on the wrong side of town.

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.
