Eenheid is a growing archive of South African lives.
South Africa is home to many different people, cultures, traditions, music, art and more. An extremely beautiful and uniquely diverse country, special to many people for many reasons, but it was not long ago that Apartheid sought to divide a nation and its lasting impact is still felt today.
In 2016 I started sending disposable cameras to an increasingly diverse group of South Africans. This ongoing collaborative project explores ideas of unity, community and identity. Eenheid aims to bring people together and create new understandings through the sharing of personal experience via a common medium. It's the goal that these snapshots into real lives will serve as an authentic archive of South Africa and its people.
The archive exists online and as a printed series of magazines. Half of all profits are donated to local South African charities, the remaining half is used to keep the project going.
