Full Description

Yasser ‘Mierkat’ Booley started producing photographs in 1993 on the eve of the ‘new’ South Africa. Raised within the tension of a conservative Cape Malay home in politically fraught South Africa, he soon became an observant apprentice, set on mastering the essence of the electric ‘rainbow nation’. This book is a celebration, an indulgent vision. Booley’s South Africa shows ordinary people caught at a crossroads, entangled in a dishevelled unity. He brings to light the beauty of humanity through all religious and cultural differences, through class and gender diversity. His character and style reveal an unbridled optimism, sprinkled with an accidental whiff of irony. Text in English, French, Dutch, and German. Also available in the Africalia series: Grassroots Upgraded ISBN 9789058563910 Calvin Dondo ISBN 9789058564214 Julius Mwelu ISBN 9789058564030 Kiripi Katembo ISBN 9789058565174 Teddy Mazina ISBN: 9789058565167 Sammy Baloji ISBN 9789058563965
