In this astonishing series of portraits, award-winning photographer David Lurie explores a place and community that exist on the very fringes of Cape Town Here, in a mirror image of the beautiful and desirable city, life is lived at the very edge. Of his time spent photographing Manenberg, David Lurie says: I was welcomed, entertained, amused; I was also frightened, bewildered, often disoriented, incredulous. His portraits of a place and a people arrest us with their unsparing honesty and painstaking care."
