Children of Geluk  Edition | 20

CHILDREN OF GELUK | 2007 An uplifting visual correlation between children and the future of South Africa pre-Nelson Mandela.  I delight in the way that children live in the moment, whatever their circumstances, and consider this to be a gift that adults tend to lose.  Unfortunately, many children are innocent heirs to a previous generation’s harsh legacy. It is important that children inherit a world they can be proud of rather than one that needs to be continually patched up. As a parent, I feel distressed about children who live in poverty and hope that these photographs will somehow document of hope within the history of a country trying to overcome poverty.  Exhibited in 2008, "Children of Geluk" formed part of an exhibition called "A Childs Gaze" | Thompson Gallery - Johannesburg.
