Born in 1956 in South Africa, photographer Santu Mofokeng grew up in Soweto and seized daily life in the townships, slums where "non-whites" were penned by the racist regime. His work is exhibited in Amsterdam from February 15th.
The photographs in this portfolio are part of Santu Mofokeng's "Dukathole" series. They were taken in 1988 at Dukathole (Old Germiston), a township in the eastern suburbs of Johannesburg, where Métis and black families were deported.
