You turned 9 years-old yesterday and I just wanted to let you know that you’re growing up into such a wonderful young lady and I’m so proud to be your Daddy. I miss you and I love you.It’s perhaps appropriate that on Tuesday, June 22, I found myself in Soweto photographing, among other things, the township’s children. Johannesburg’s formal settlement is perhaps South Africa’s most famous. The township was site of the 1976 student protest and has the only street on earth that has housed two Nobel prize winners, Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela.
While conditions in some areas of Soweto have improved, there are regions where family’s continue to live in a third world state.
