The vibrancy and diversity of Joburg frame the stark disparities of income and poverty that characterize Africa’s richest city. Particular mention is made of the plight of the inner-city poor. Schadeberg’s photographs are enhanced with text by Stephan Hofstatter (investigative journalist and writer); Mak Manaka (poet, performer, writer); Lebo Mashile (poet, performer, media personality); Carole Rothlisberger (magazine editor and writer); Colin Jiggs Smuts (novelist, educator and cultural activist); Stuart Wilson (researcher at the Centre for Applied Legal Studies); Gringo Wotshela (writer and film-maker). The book was created in partnership with the Centre for Applied Legal Studies, Wits University.
