Uitsig Monster – Ashley Walters

A photographic investigation into the landscape, structures and objects of Uitsig and the surrounding areas of Parow Industria, Ravensmead,Cravenby, Belhar and Eureka.

This project considers the landscapes, spaces, structures and lives lived in the suburb of Uitsig on the periphery of the Mother City of Cape Town, and in so doing argues for a consideration of those who not only lived during apartheid, but who live after its demise. In addition to questions of photographic representation, the project also addresses ideas of space, and inarticulated injuries and trauma. Photography is well suited as a medium through which to consider these difficult questions, for in its very inception the medium is one of simultaneous absence and presence.
