#Fotos | Welkom 2da Trephawz

Welkom 2da Trephawz is the stylized writing of “Welcome to the trap house”. The series is inspired by the work I’ve done with rapper Youngsta around Hillbrow in Johannesburg; by my love for trap music; and by a desire to see how I can render the experience of listening to trap music using photos of the gritty monoliths which decorate the side-walks of innercity Johannesburg.

Welkom 2da Trephawz is an immersive experience illustrated by vacant buildings with broken windows and by graffiti-decorated walls onto which have been pasted half-torn SAFE ABORTION and PENIS posters. There’s a general claustrophobia associated with being in and among the traffic of the city, and these images aim to partly portray that.
