The township of Langa has always had something of a pioneering spirit. Back in March 1960, at the height of apartheid, a 23-year-old student led over 30,000 protestors through the streets of Cape Town. It was a turning point in South African politics—and it all started in Langa.
Today, Langa is a cultural hive. I got to explore the South African township, which is now teetering on the edge of tourism, and meet its famed local graffiti artists. These are the photographs.
