Coronation Park, Krugersdorp, Johannesburg (2014)

Coronation Park was a public park where a residential community has formed, living in caravans, tree houses, tents, wendy houses and other makeshift shelters. Some of them earn money through part-time work, and they also receive donations of food and clothing from the Vryheidsfront Plus, who introduced me to the community.

I felt strangely comfortable in the campfire and braai atmosphere.
