AWARDS WINNERS 2018 Nov 2018

South Africa: Tim Hulme

Title: Xenophobia

"Our model Huguette is a Rwandan national living in Johannesburg, so we took her to downtown and shot her looking a little out of place, an 'alien', as a commentary on the xenophobia that flares up in South Africa sometimes.

Downtown Johannesburg is one of the most dangerous places on the planet. It is a melting pot of cultures from all over Africa. There’s an energy that can’t be explained. It is dangerous and beautiful and energetic and inspiring and scary all at the same time. If you can harness some of that energy, often the results are special. I wanted to take a foreign African and take her into this environment and make her look completely alien."
