Chasing Light In Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

Recently I was in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe for a few days and on my last morning there I woke up before dawn to go on a photowalk. Armed with my iPhone 5 I set out at 04:30a.m. I started with a two kilometre walk as I waited for the light and the first thing I saw was this tree along Burnside Road at the corner with Moffat Avenue.

Blood on the leaves.

This is my short story of an early morning at the Bulawayo Vegetable Market along Fifth Avenue between Robert Mugabe Way and Jason Moyo Street.

It's 06:30 and the downtown vegetable market's been busy for hours already.

Chasing Light In Johannesburg

A few weeks ago my friend Kyle and I woke up at 4:00a.m. to and made our way to Ghandi Square in downtown Johannesburg, South Africa, to chase the sunrise. This is what happened.

First light. The morning after the night before.

I’ve met some really cool people through Instagram and a few months ago a group of us formed a photography collective. If you’re on Instagram check out #BangBangJHBCollective to see more of our photography.
