Shakes Photography has been following and documenting Nyaope addicts around Hammanskraal in the past week. For those that do not know, Nyaope is a VERY ADDICTIVE cocktail — a joint laced with cheap heroin.

Heroin is known as one of the most addictive substances on the planet. I sat down, heard their stories and broke bread with some of them. The last couple of days have been filled with so much emotion. These addicts are usually abandoned by their families, exploited in the informal labour market and resort to crime to help satisfy their addiction . One of them told me “I’ve been trying to stay clean, but I can’t, please find me help – if you can”.

john berger on why photography is bad for you

Filed under: photography — ABRAXAS @ 5:39 pm

In 1962, after four years in rural Gloucestershire (where he first met and became friends with John Sassall), Berger moved to Geneva, where he was introduced to Jean Mohr by the Swiss film-maker Alain Tanner. Berger wanted to learn to take photographs and Mohr had offered to teach him. “I quickly lost interest,” he recalls. “I noticed that when you take a photograph, you stop looking at what you’ve shot. I was more interested in looking. I think I gave my camera away.”

8 July – 29 August

Erdmann Contemporary was established in Cape Town in 2001 and is twinned with a gallery in Aarau in Switzerland. This summer sees the first group exhibition of photography thus far hosted by the gallery with a selection of images by both well-known and emerging talent arranged around the theme of ‘Dreams to Reality’. The images explore dreamscapes and the blurred barrier between the conscious and subconscious mind. There are a wide range of photographic styles on show – amongst the artists featured will be Niklas Zimmer with his floating and ethereal nudes, Tanisha Bhana with images of abandoned landscapes, and the distorted bodies in motion of Robert Hamlbin.
