About this piece
2021 – Timber (informal settlement), South Africa
After three years of begging the municipality to provide sanitation, sanitation arrived six months ago. A few months later they stopped providing the service. “So where are we to shit?”, they asked the municipality. Their answer, “You all can dig a hole and shit in there.
On the day I took this photograph, I noticed the words on the little boy’s t-shirt. I AM THE FUTURE. What future is there for anyone when the system treats people like wild animals in the jungle. At least those animals don’t get to dig a hole to bury their poo.
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.
