Marc Shoul (Part Two): ‘Flatlands’
Delight, Christmas Day, Benjamin Court, Yeoville, 2004

'People do not come from Johannesburg, people come to Johannesburg. So many people who have moved here have come as refugees, searching for ‘gold’ in one form or another. So for over a century now, Johannesburg has been a beacon for people from all over the world, offering the promise of a better life', says Shoul. Here are images from his series titled 'Flatlands'.
