Joe Slovo, Cape Town – Flickr pic of the day
Lesley says, “The picture was taken at Joe Slovo, an informal settlement in the Western Cape, near Milnerton.
“I am working on a series of ‘laundry’ photographs for an exhibition. All the pictures have different stories to tell.
“I have always been fascinated by laundry and washing lines; it’s like ‘proof of life’. No matter how destitute they are or how much poverty there is, people seem to take great pride in their appearance.”
Experience authentic local culture on one of our popular township tours to Langa, Gugulethu, Khayelitsha, Kayamandi and Lwandle. There are various routes available, each with a number of stops along the way.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
