The photographic journey begins in the streets of Jo'burg in the late 1970's and ends in the rural and desert landscapes of the millennium. It is not a political A to Z or a documentary of our political past, but an observation of the lives of ordinary people and their daily survival choices as they have struggled and overcome the limiting circumstances of their lives - or simply reflected the tenor of their times. Most of the images are unpublished because they were taken in a time when there was no space for the ordinary. They 'fell through the cracks' because they were often considered too 'off beat' to make it. These photographs capture glimpses of life between the cracks before, after and while the political wheel was turning. They are about how people try to survive in so many different and extraordinary ways and the survival choices they make under often extreme conditions of hardship, how they reflected themselves, and how I absorbed their reflections, how they danced with reality, made light in the dark spaces, and embraced each other at great risk.
