More than 60 photographic images shot by disadvantaged teenagers from Johannesburg townships. Subjects include a celebration at a Soweto Baptist church, Jo'burg's edgy street markets, a Soweto street, and the opening of the 2010 World Cup. The project's beginnings go back to 1988 with a shot of the Free Nelson Mandela concert at Wembley Stadium by photographer John Cole, an image which hangs on the wall of Nelson's Mandela's Johannesburg home. Twenty-two years on, Cole and David Westhead of Wilton Pictures set up a photography course to teach teenagers from Soweto's Umuzi Photo Club the fundamentals of photography. Participants have been awarded full scholarships and bursaries to photographic colleges, had work published in magazines and have been exhibited in galleries around the world.
