LENS LIFE ♣ SOWETO COMING

IMG_5107 I have been meaning to share one of my most eye opening experiences this year via three gentlemen who go by the name of boys of Soweto . Before the morning of the day we did this shoot Soweto was just another painted town  for me . As ignorant as it sounds Soweto never gets past the image of the  apartheid and its infamous riots , everything seems to stop right there for most people . I walked into this town totally blind  and left with both eyes gleaming . The warm feeling that grounds this town left me  tired from turning every corner to take a photo . Shooting these gentlemen was a highlight for me , and I am definitely doing a another tour back there very soon .
