those are the headlines the news continues here on out us here after that more news editor. we need the roads to get close to a dictator the more drugs strucken are not likely to be. shut. down. for some time but it's news it was the weapon of choice stronger than bullets smile with its documentary but this time on al-jazeera twenty first century africa a continent undergoing great change and finally seizing control of its gimmick but it's been a long box on that he has a goal for doug i feel was a colonial tool going to write about the brakes on a. crime or a crime for the independent competent good in the post-colonial good for
photographers like my legs to keep it up john that you call for us. but elsewhere the narrative was of a call on manageable content often reduced to just one news. now a new generation is using photography to celebrate the question and represent a continent on the rise. every time i moved up a camera and do an important assignment. there's always that voice that say's you're not good enough you know going to make it in this profession i've tried to ignore it she ignored that voice but it's a very voice that i've pushed me. to do better every day to push myself to do
better everything. was. sort. of on the move yet next. i'm going to photograph from here. so you're going to be doing. what. i like to don't change from. a little bit to the player. my parents used to buy newspapers and all the stories that were of of black people in use because they were all negative in the sense of extreme poverty all lead people by just everything negative my dream was to be an advertiser to provide to pieces of beautiful things that people feeling good about themselves dressed well. but it
was a picture that the padded redo didn't want to show to the world. this is they wanted to paint black people as the birds. i was that in two years old i've just been thrown out of for the school for being a black woman causing a career which was in as inappropriate. and that now having to wear knights of the . taking pictures of news events covering. all their horrors of.
i was just so sick of butter graffitti oh those negative things. but in the end ninety's something new was happening in south africa. with food of any and exploded with what friends and business on to the street wanted to be to express to create deadness he is against us and we wait for pledges inhalation so i took photographs of what was happening around me. i was always with this people reply big to just solve what this college had produced. notice to my camera because they could see that i was also sleeping whatever there was in the. the people in those photographs are now the stars of today. some had served time i've also struggled to make ends
meet but today they want the record business of africa. their records. is their faces until. now is one of the people that has kept her eyes from from abi giving speeches to date you know what it meant when he wants book buying mobile brave and then he would slice it up and have more importance on him for the governor bronson remembers back home must love him a month. now almost two decades of the south africa became for him. i want to revisit those photographs and see how far we've come as a nation and understand my own doing.
if frank when they won i he's a good friend of mine read to many years ago when he was still trying to find our identity and then you saw africa. then he was still a spy ring you know to tell you she was greatness if you're going to do this be white gypsum cotton and then we cannot thank you we don't want to. give that. kind of. clothes as if you just. come home. oh. oh oh. yes there's the expressing our love creating clothes and being in this wondrous new model yeah it is a new study just about a lot of us where. i could have painted the whole outfit like a spray paint is very like the spray and believe of work i believe of the reds.
we are the generation that changed south africa young energetic. boys and girls coming up and taking over where we are all together all of us all of that gang that is why i've lived a lot of my work and i've decided like it to just be great sister visit all the people that i photographed then so the brand my people my generation yeah yeah. wow . who wanted to be seen to be good to this person and to accomplish something and wanted to work for it and he wanted to get that moment passed and then here we are today i can i am timing one of the best if they're b.m.w. six foot five. yeah. yeah they've been the superior be zero zero zero
x. is no one is forcing me to do all that the rough stuff that we wanted to do. give the week whereby a petition to realize this is no want this we get about. how is this the throwing stones this culture is so over that it's all about moving forward and living it that we want to embrace everybody. and we all have this say the spot we're with a sort of a suppressed yeah and then when that lead just came off and went all of us to be this way the same time same time you know on black people on kind of the thing that we can achieve peace in social period of time. to me too much people i think it would talking about is just a dream. i. was.
i. would go home going to the history of the late i got here for inspiration i'll never spent any big project without giving him. my dad passed away when i was sixteen and my mother passed away two thousand. years and made me. trade it in my success in terms of the target. of my career. i know this is going to be like an empty house my bedroom is the. butter for the fake that spending and i took my mother's house it's hard to. then when i was small this living and you have to be working out there good noise
and banging on the door and all those things the cops used to demand that my father's bridges they id. my dad a wall behave like a kid for an intruder to come and not very him as a person it used to exist to help me and so those are the present that i respect or the president tells me that i just stand up for myself but yet when he's confronted with a you leg with the militia and he becomes vulnerable you question yourself like is it what that respect. i could have stood out the you know and said no. i am sick over here we are. sick of being portrayed like. a bird we don't we don't we don't like we
like. it was just thrown in from us. and i think that's what raised enough to live their lives in the dead scribbly to show up just like says where the niggers are as things go it. has never had the opportunity to. to summarize my curry in the last ten years say there's never been a summer in fact new live in years there's never been a summer without a disease you hit.
one of those very unique in a series that we've never had know can produce done songs before. just some upgrade to solve some of printing off struggles glorify poverty and was thus all people in the mold. it's most of the sun in our lungs so people can relate . it was fresh and because now post-independence we could celebrate now we had reason to celebrate so god. because you know in our minds we were free. i don't know you. just need to give people what. they're always went to so did the david he said you know that address the old even leave that. now you know you know better.
than the general this is. because you've got nothing to prove now we're going to lose the heads. together of studios for me it was a pivotal moment in my career to actually get to record some of my works yeah. unfortunately musicals coming in this country like music in the music that's why music was just managed with the boundaries and overlaps into the white culture and some of my musical as well and i have a huge love for me which i don't know where i come from. dance music is universal you know it doesn't matter what.
their country is. quite a lot since twenty years ago when i started photography in my class i was the only black student somebody would just look at me funny and just get pissed of just by looking at me they got to sit with me in the lecture hall they're all just to go and beg. because the only black people that are way exposed to weather like they are maids or they are gardeners at home and then they have my son generation this is a list fortunately they didn't have to go through what i had to go through which goes back to quentin. already. in the race to go christmas really.
think. you'll forgive me for my sins on a what the devil son of put me down but i never ever stops to game the game shows the state never change still the same all the first things first i love my city its all that and wait until they see me recognize this in a way he's living my dream i never graduated i was told to quit my studies. they said to me you have to leave you have to quit this is not the right course for black girls. i feel like i really need to hear. it because i'm still hating and less change because i used to go with the way. we're told that whatever that had to do the posed so it remained for us to move and as a nation when in to not pay attention to any negative stuff that happened in mandela
i can forgive the people who put him in prison for twenty seven years who are you not to leave everything in the past and focus on forgiveness which is not really say i don't know with my child in a recession but my generation is still going to linger in our minds for as long as we leave at this point. that's already be the match for. best performer and t.v. . best performance. best engineers this one is very interesting. i don't believe that the bottom line. might.
be. just not. with my. since last year november i think i've been making the check kind of like every day do sometimes two three you know and say yeah i pretty much make all the time. i will really want to make it perfect this time especially because i have the opportunity to do it. still want to prove something so you know i guess i'm still one of them i don't know that there was even any of i have more i have more to offer this more to me than you know i haven't done nothing prevents yeah i feel like i've been really done nothing being like being
female it's not really about about it i don't belive it's as much as a video what i'm creating now you know for me it wasn't even like you know like they are but whatever whatever just but it was also like where you come from where you grow up you know what i'm saying he's not going to amount to nothing you know so you're always trying to prove you're so. he just so love hungry you get. your. we probably reflect that until we die.
and. all of them the good the potential makes known to all of them. the neglect the good. governor. five. things you didn't do i was the reason was to be the next brenda fussy. you had to be the next printer for us. but i've never done one of those. you want to be. in i want to be a chemical engineer would i what good we're going to do and what kind of engineer one. hundred one to be apollo or wow and then when i. was v.m.s. chemical engineer pilots
a mess and you. want to be a teacher. maybe my son generation is that good dinners and that will be able to make sensible decisions. fairly i think breakfast. yes. like an event with many cooks because. they're surprised by this but today. it's the best meal. on the motives and. you have a mother like me. it was an ism the go. ahead to just accept that this is your life. all the time when it was like my first day of school my mum was a with mean anything to school and actually be like. tomorrow.
it was more like i was in boarding so i was put there the day before. i had to man up i exposed to a lot of things sometimes i used to feel guilty i still do every parent will like to see their kid they want to be a part of they have kids physically at school there's the one thing that for many years i've been looking forward to and when it happened i couldn't be there. there's a lot easier starting on something different when you don't look at them and people would like so easy so you got to help you only because they had never seen anybody and had no reference i wouldn't have achieved what i did that i was you couldn't have been for the support that to get you know you were there for me throughout. i always know you to be a photographer even though i never really knew what it was but i couldn't picture
doing anything else in office or anything. that's interesting. because. i spoke positive things from him that doesn't come with a big has. been industry and quite good surveys mostly a show the way people describe the life they once lived but actually going from what they talk about in the song. it's not that i'm not alive it's not the same something lost just a little bit i think in the what it did for chick no hello baby girl you don't list what you really think of like reliving what i'm going true and real to what i'm going through at the same time. i want to take on some of my shoulders that's why
i'm always working on. a room and i had my first mistake i mentioned all the things they say to go trolling highs. shame things i used to do with my friends at school . just being straight to the point on this. night so i might get some. insight by the most amazing. something fresh with inmates that like it so i'll be in charge got to mention that it's just like a full body must. i never saw it up partially to anything all this morning news that africa way they wish is. doing and it was a lot of freedom i'll grow up in a free world i never got to experience all the trauma that happen all the hectic tragedy and everything. i wouldn't say i had a problem going up. you
have the freedom to express yourself this is the one thing that my parents recently deprived or. with our generation it was just better ideas different we used to as a weapon. certain people might not have the same benefits as i believe but they are free to express themselves. and they're free to open up. to me express through them if you don't have served it's present what would be striving for. i'm not as n.b.a. used to be after lead to acceptance for what they are. initially yes i was beat i would just come out of our date and i just thought and not was stolen from. i just
don't want my son to eric that. my interest in photography goes bad to. mr presentation or. of the bad people that have managed to make decisions ted says that we're not only bit of that myself but will benefit my son's future as well. searching. in the most unlikely places award winning photographer bowden the one. to set out to challenge teaching deceptions about for good. and bring photography to his community. a story of hope. in the face of adversity.
