    Love the first one.

  • lapetitefaon

    I thought the first was a painting, seems just so unreal! I really love the attitude in these photos, shots 3 and 4 are great. The little girl photo is really impressive too! She looks so grown up, really captured her.

  • letterpreston

    I love the awkwardness in some of these photos. They draw me in, but I don’t want to get very close.

  • that first one is indeed great!

  • Ale

    HAHA I KNOWW WHEREE THE FIRST ONE IS:D

  • I swear i ate at a place just like that yesterday in Santa barbra. Wish i had my camera!! dang it. Great pics. Great subjects!!

  • I recognize that menu! Acapulco Deli & Restaurant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The “crunch french toast” is the sure giveaway. I used to live two blocks from that joint.

Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored.
