18 Aug Discover new perspectives of a hidden Durban through ‘Ngale: Seeing Beyond’
Durban: A city that when called to mind, most commonly conjures up images of bare feet treading golden sands, the far reaching promenade that houses skaters, cyclists, rollerbladers and more, and the lush greenery that shines through in even the most concrete reaches of the city.
Yes, Durban is a land of perpetually sunny beaches and warm waters, but there is much more to the seaside city than good weather and better views, and if you’re heading to the Loeries this weekend, you’d do well to explore the city’s more undiscovered gems.
A project by the Durban Centre for Photography (DCP) titled Ngale: seeing beyond posits a wonderfully unique and immersive perspective of the city of Durban.
In the striking photo series you’ll find a side to Durban not often seen on flashy social media accounts, travel websites and in pumped up tourist brochures. This is the ‘hidden Durban’ as the project explains, a shrewd and poignant showcase of all the unseen elements that makes Durban what it is.
View a few images from the project below and find more by DCP by following their Facebook page.
