During a period of around five years, on and off, I went to South Africa to work on different projects through photo, documentary filmmaking and tourism. The first time I came to South Africa was through studies at the Red Cross’ school in Stockholm.
I became absorbed by the country's vulnerable history. I was lucky enough to meet people who were very welcome and open, and brought me to different areas of Cape Town. I had the opportunity to experience many unforgettable meetings with people, whose stories touched me in different ways. All the impressions in this country full of contrasts – beautiful landscapes, poverty in townships, gated communities, the history of apartheid and the strive to become a rainbow nation – have caused me never to stop being curious about this country.
