    *The Resident Bane* | #apetownshenanigans … a story set in Bela, a gun violent, gang prone & drug terrorized township in Cape Town that I visited on Wednesday, September 17th’ 2014. This little adventure led me straight into a drug den where I encountered Cape Town’ s “tik” time bomb first hand. & Without Judgement, I observed…. I went in, nervous about what to expect. I had a hundred rand in my sock just in case I got into a bit of a scuffle (so I could somehow get home after the fact) and the words of my friend, “The Resident Bane” who accompanied me: “Never show fear… They will kill you for a cigarette (to score a ciggie)” kept ringing in my head the entire time.

    I was in the area, not to uncover the tragic unravelings of a poverty, drug& violence ridden society but to toy with ideas of symbolism; To encounter a community of human beings, share a moment of their time and collaborate with them to create a story that resonates with their triumphs& their plight.

    Note: The morning I shot this, I was up by 6 AM, dressed and ready by 7. I arrived at just a little before 8 AM to set up and start shooting. I did not leave until about 10:10 AM (just in time for church). The Art, you see, is not nearly as much in product in front of you, as it is in the process. And, if you Love something enough, you will find ways to bend in obedience. I am grateful for the process.


    This, is Art—as a form of breathing.
