‘Township Resolution” is a collaboration with photographer Dexter Lander (2nd Year Fashion Communication and Promotion) and Stylist and Image maker Gracie Wales Bonner (2nd Year Fashion design with Marketing). Gracie cites the work of Pieter Hugo, Viviane Sassen and Thabiso Sekalga as key references for the shoot, which was an attempt to recreate a ‘virtual township’ around Ridley Road market. Informed by a recent trip to Ghana, Gracie was inspired by the slow loading speed of the internet, and the distortions that appeared on her screen, something that is developed in these photographs.
