Smarteez: Soweto’s hippest


For the last two days I’ve been in Soweto doing makeup on a shoot for one of South Africa’s latest and most exciting design offerings; Kepi. His clothes are bright, exuberant and epitomize the soul of Soweto and the people who live there. The shoot was shot by Jonathan Van Zeller and you can see more of the test and setup photos on his blog:

Here are some teasers of the last two days… Bear in mind these are behind the scenes shots and not the actual final shots which were shot on celluloid not digital.

Hope you enjoy them. There’s still more to come with three more days in Soweto. I can’t wait for the actual photos.
