WORDSWORTH BOOKS

“A problem: it is very difficult to stop looking at this book! It’s bright, it’s bold, it’s quirky, it’s charming, and on every page it seems there are infinite little details lurking, leering, peeking and peering, waiting to be seen. But what exactly IS Sharp Sharp? Simply put, it’s a collection of pictures by photographer Ed Suter celebrating the unique and vibrant nature of South African urban street culture. Glossaries of the streets’ more unusual terms (chizkop/chiskop/cheesekop/kaaskop – literally a cheese head, slang for a clean-shaven cranium) make for a helpful and colourful addition, and the photographs are also interspersed with thoughts from street artists such as faith47 and Freddy Sam, as well as from informal traders and members of the slick-dressing Smarteez movement. Sharp Sharp is a visual smorgasbord for the eyes to voraciously guzzle. Enjoy!”
