HENRIC JOKEIT - GOODHOPE
In 2009 Hennric Jokeit travelled from Zurich to Cape Town for the first time. Over the next six years, he frequently returned, documenting the port city and tourist destination in his distinctive photonegative style. 'Goodhope' gathers this imagery into a striking narrative of life in South Africa’s oldest city. The book explores Cape Town’s natural magnificence, post-industrial character, and widespread urban poverty. Included is an essay by South African art critic Sean O’Toole. He tracks Cape Town’s transformation from agrarian outpost of empire into an industrial hub founded on ruthless capitalist ethos.
