Here is a random sample of my photos. Visit my galleries for many more.

<p>In Kliptown, Soweto, a monument conveys the popular demands of the Freedom Charter – drawn together in 1955 as a unified statement of ambitions by numerous anti-Apartheid political movements including the African National Congress (ANC). The Charter is unambiguous in challenging the racialist regime and its organisers were branded traitors by the Apartheid government. <br /></p><p>Less than 40 years later, sections of the Freedom Charter were incorporated into South Africa's new constitution, and the ANC emerged as the ruling party. </p>

A lot of what I write professionally carries no by-line. Here are some of the works I have put my name to.
