A Drain on our Dignity

Masixole Feni lives and shoots in the townships of Cape Town. His gift with the camera has enabled him to highlight the failures in service delivery in his community. In his book "A Drain on our Dignity", he has managed to capture the subject of sanitation with amazing creativity. His point is clear. The lack of basic provision of sanitation, that many take for granted, robs many people of their basic human dignity.

Documented here are the inequalities, class divide and the spatial injustice that our democratically elected government acknowledges but continuously fails to substantively address. These are clear when a child and her mother relieve themselves in an open field next to a national road in clear view
Masixole Feni is a young freelance photographer living in Emfuleni Cape Town. He is part of the Iliso Labantu Photography Collective and he recently won the Ernest Cole Photographic Award. His work is focused on social justice issues.
