Hidden Magic: Katlego Kgabale

As kids, we grew up with our imagination running wild though our minds. As least I did! I would spend hours bent over a book, flipping recklessly through pages for words and images to feed my daydreams. Kgabale illustrated work offers up little brown girl dreams that I would have loved to come across as a child.

Dedicated to the Cultural Preservation of the African Aesthetic

Always dressed in a mixture of township cool and sartorial chic styles, the trio that make up the Soweto and Sandton-based style and photography collective who operate under the title ‘I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU' have provided us with some of the coolest and most refreshing images of everyday folks documenting their interactions with the environments they live in and the people they meet. 

Comprised of twin brothers Innocent and Justice Mukheli, and their friend Vuyo Mpantsha, I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU’s aim is simply to show the story of their Soweto (and wherever else they travel to). Because what you see, of course, is not the only story of Soweto, but that of three individuals living in Soweto.

Watch them tell their stories at TEDxSoweto.
