I recently spent a Friday walking around downtown Joburg with Gerald Garner. Gerald needed a few photos taken for his new book, Johannesburg 2020 and Ahead. So we walked the city from end to end — nearly nine kilometers total, with a couple of Uber rides mixed in — chatting about recent developments in town as Gerald pointed out the different buildings and scenes he needed me to shoot.
Gerald and I have worked together for years; many of the places we visited were places I’ve been before on Gerald’s JoburgPlaces tours. But it’s been a while since I really dug in to the city like this, and I’m still seeing everything with fresh eyes after the hard lockdown. I loved every minute of the walk — it was one of my favorite days of the year so far.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures.
Thanks for the walk, Gerald.
If you’d like to hear more about Gerald’s new book (I’m personally very excited to see it), there’s a launch at Thunderwalker next Thursday, 10 December, at 6:30 p.m.
