Photojournalist Guy Tillim proposes a series about his hometown, where many abandoned areas have been occupied by immigrants from the former ghettos of apartheid. Photojournalist (represented by the agency Vu), Guy Tillim (Johannesburg, South Africa, 1962) proposed a series about his hometown, where many abandoned areas have been occupied by immigrants from the former ghettos of apartheid. This series of photographs of Johannesburg will monitor the fates of the inhabitants of this town built on the foundations of apartheid. The question implicitly raised by this work is whether Johannesburg will once again become a city symbol of exclusion, or whether any progress will be made to integrate the poorest inhabitants.
This work won the Leica Oskar Barnak in 2005.

Born in 1962 in Johannesburg, South Africa, he lives and works in Durban and Paris. Photojournalist, he joined the collective Afrapix (1986-1990) and began by thanking the shootings in the townships. The quality of his reports, he was to be called by Reuters (1986-1988) and AFP (1993-19994). Tillim then becomes a free-lance and pledges to cover the world wars. Although her work speaks primarily of the war, declined Tillim this theme in a variety of approaches: portrait, points of conflict and the urban landscape. In 2004 he was awarded the Daimler Chrysler for photography in South Africa and in 2005, the Oskar Barnack prize sponsored by Leica.
