Youth2Youth - Thirty years after Soweto '76 was conceived by Pallo Jordan, the Minister of Arts and Culture, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Soweto student uprising. Young photographers from four provinces were asked to photograph their peers, and the results are extraordinary. From Kwaito and Hip Hop's virile self-expression to the creative energy of the flourishing fashion world that clothes local celebrities and their fans; from the comfort of ancient cultural traditions in rural hamlets to the newness of shared urban spaces, here is a world with Attitude. Where young people speak positively of others. Where one is accountable to oneself. A world freed from past indignities, and full of unashamedly beautiful people. Y2Y demonstrates the immense transformation in young people's lives since 1976. The photographers have not been blind to the many problems that face our country. However, they have chosen to photograph their concerns with great sensitivity and compassion. This is, after all, a title that celebrates a vision for the future, built on the dreams of today.
