A powerful moment

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Kayla Muir

The South African Apartheid ended in 1994 when the DA was voted out of power and the ANC voted in. This photograph was taken in 2014; 20 years after it ended! This photograph shows that the after effects of the Apartheid are still being felt by the people in poverty. I watched the build up to this moment; both of their reactions to each other. I captured a moment between two people who's lives will never meet again.

Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
