‘WOZA SISI’- Come sister

'As I walk around Johannesburg CBD, I notice an influx of many street hairstylists stationed in different intersections on the pavement. Woza Sisi is a photo series investigating ways in which migrant women negotiate, navigate and shape the complex space they encounter in Johannesburg CBD as street hairstylists. It looks into ways in which the women position themselves; how they use and negotiate urban spaces.’

The photo-zine includes images from the series. The layout is clean and simple. The grid formation is used as an design element to represent the display boards used for advertising the different hairstyles. The publication bound is finished with braided synthetic hair, significant to the subject matter.
