Snapshots from Cape Town.
Photographs by Per Englund.

Life On Geos is a photo diary and a personal journey through Cape Town. The black and white photographs paint a portrait of the city from an outsider's point of view, a city which is said to be one of the most beautiful in the world. For centuries, Cape Town has fascinated adventurers, sailors, writers and artists. Swedish photographer Per Englund has seen beyond the beauty and for four years been scratching on the polished surface of the city. He has pointed his camera towards what aroused interest, amusement or concern. Street scenes, urban landscapes, bars and hotel rooms, tell the story of a post-apartheid city. A city with strong contrasts and a rich political, colonial, and traditional African heritage.
