From Tuesday, 3 December, AREA3 will be hosting a portrait exhibition captured directly from the streets, by 5 hand-picked Joburg photographers, of their interpretation of what unites the people in the City of Gold. Running until Sunday, 9 February, the expo comes fresh off the live adidas Originals Unite Joburg event, which featured Danny Brown, and continues the campaign theme.
The photographer are: Hanro Havenga, Chris Saunders, Anthony Bila, Justice and Innocent Mukheli as well as Stephanie O’Connor. They were tasked to capture as many portraits of the people in 5 iconic Joburg districts, Illovo, Maboneng Precinct, Newtown, Sandton and Soweto in their own style respectively; each artist afforded just one day.
The expo will no doubt be a highlight when showcased in the Maboneng Precinct of East Johannesburg, AREA3. After the big opening on 3 December at 6pm, AREA3 will be open Thursday to Sunday from 12 noon to 4pm.
