In 2012 and 2013 the young South African photographer Katharine Cooper, who lives in Arles, travelled back to her homeland South Africa and Zimbabwe to photograph women, men and children whose lives she could have shared. For four months she travelled to the various locations linked to her childhood and personal history. Deliberately ignoring the anti-apartheid sentiments, Cooper followed her own intuition revealing her solidarity with South Africa`s complicated society that suffers from the high costs of apartheid such as disintegration and alienation. Cooper achieved an intimate portrait, in all its diversity but with incredible sensitivity.
