the bez valley project #TheBezValleyProject

This is a work in progress. In collaboration with writer, journalist and traveller, Ang Lloyd, we will be exploring our suburb, Bezuidenhout Valley: one of the oldest suburbs in Johannesburg.

Together we will tell the stories of Bez Valley’s inhabitants, through words (Ang) and images (me), starting with our immediate neighbours and those in our street.

But it will not just be limited to the Valley; we will include people in surrounding areas, too.

The Bez Valley Project works under the premise that everyone has a story to tell, and, much like six degrees of separation, we are all connected by narrative.

We hope to turn these stories into a book someday.
