Nkululeko | Portrait Study of a Homeless Man

Collapse Show info

Black and White studies of a homeless man just opposite Museum Africa in Newtown. 

I couldn’t resist to take a series of pictures of this man who was uncomfortable with me photographing him. He kept on turning his face away every time I pointed the camera at him, but I persisted taking a few candid shots. Eventually I approached him and he shyly agreed I could take a formal portrait. His name is Nkululeko, which in Xhosa means “Freedom”.
