Farren van Wyk (1993) was born in Port Elizabeth and studied this gangster culture from inside. She chose to omit her preformed knowledge about the gangster culture. The Cambo 4x5” large format camera gave her the space and time to let there be a dialog. In this way she got to know the people better. She portrayed Schauderville and its people by looking at who they are and not at what these people have done. She discovered a positive and more humane side in a district where gang wars are part of the daily life.
