I made a drawing of this a while back based on a magazine article on an unrelated subject, it is nice to source the original.
I was drawn to the element of cariacature initially which is as strong in the buildings as it is in the portraits & I feel is the strength of these images.

Shame on you publishing these boys the same for the author, these two look as if they're from a mental hospital! and that's no joke. Poor people from the rural country side don't look like them...I grew up there and even if the country side is big, you will not see men/youngsters like this...i think this pic was taken from somewhere in Europe and for the sake of his book published as if it's SA. Those men don't have the characteristics of SA men!
