Mud Chic

While photographing the book, Shack Chic, which focussed on the lifestyle and inspiration found in the shack-lands of Cape Town, the most frequent reply to my question, ‘Where is your home?’ was ‘Transkei’, I felt the need to explore ‘home’, to understand this attachment that the urban shack dwellers feel for their rural roots.
– Craig Fraser

Here life is lived in tune with nature and in cognisance of community. It is here in every inch of a traditional rural dwelling that we find the ideological and decorative footprint of Xhosa culture.
