“I decided to move away from direct confrontation and to start examining the transformative processes in South African society. I looked at developments in housing, the health system, the delivery of services to various communities, and how they were changing people’s lives. I also began to travel outside the country. It was quite a challenge to transform myself from being a news photographer—when something explodes in your face, and you have to be quick enough to record it—to recording the slower, more human processes in the country.”
