We moved to Greylingstad, a small village in decline, in 2006 and left in 2014. This post introduces my photographic impressions of Greylingstad through photos of three passersby who called out ‘Photograph me’ at different times while I was wandering down the main street.


The posts over the next few weeks will elaborate on Greylingstad, giving, I hope, a sense of a small rural South African town shortly after the transition to democracy.


This is the first post in the Greylingstad sequence. The next post is No Longer There.
