Last Sunday, I took a drive out into Mpumalanga with my good friend Nick, to meet a man named Tlokwe and photograph a traditional healers' band called Phuti Ya Bokone. It was scorching, there were at least 2000 people in someone's backyard, the band was about 80 strong, we were lying on manure and it was the most amazing experience of my life. Thanks Tlokwe. And the 39310 is what my odometer read the entire two and a half hour drive.

A Whole Bunch Of New Stuff

I tried to upload some new stuff but it isn't working, so here's a rad quote by Alec Soth:

"Photographing people, with or without permission, usually leads to all sorts of ethical dilemmas. It is unavoidable. I do my best to be good. I ask permission. I'm honest about how I use the pictures and send everyone I photograph a print. But the truth is that when I take a picture of a person I am 'using' that person. They are becoming material for my work and I'm turning them into an object, a piece of paper, that is a commodity. It is all troubling. All I can say is that on the long list of ethical crimes a misdemeanors, photographing people in the name of art isn't the worst violation."
