Caught out in the rain in the driest of spells in Cape Town, 4 artists trudge on in the most colourful part of Cape Town. This is a curated series by T-Michael for Norwegian Rain.
Norwegian Congolese artist Rafiki captures as a photographer Githan Coopoo S.A, Shakil Solanki S.A and Patrick Bogoy Congo, all artists and residents of Cape Town, in a series of portraits shot in the Bo Kaap. This series tells the story of the local community within a national socio-political and cultural context. Bo-Kaap is an Afrikaans phrase meaning “above the Cape”.
Today, it’s known as one of the most Instagrammable places in the country, thanks to its pastel-colored houses and picturesque cobbled streets. It is a former racially segregated area, situated on the slopes of Signal Hill above the city centre, in the historical centre of Cape Malay culture in Cape Town.
