Borderline South Africa
 
South Africa’s 3500km long and convoluted border line, which straddles the Indian Ocean from Kosi Bay on the East coast to Alexander Bay on South Africa’s cold Atlantic West coast, wanders diverse landscapes, cuts through socially complex and disparate communities, and demarcates where the developed super power economy of South Africa ends and the ‘rest of Africa’ begins. It could be construed in some ways as the gateway to Africa.  Beit bridge the border crossing over the Limpopo river, between South Africa and Zimbabwe is the busiest land border on the continent.
 
My chance to wander this front line as a photographer, Alexander Bay to Kosi Bay (Manguzi) and back again, for 6 weeks on assignment for GEO magazine, has prompted me to present a limited edition series of images taken on this 11 000km journey.  These images help me  reflect upon this demarcation in the sand.  This fence line.  They are a kind of visual debriefing.
