"This dividing line separates here and there, this and that, us and them. Buffers and walls are tangibly divisive devices between races, ethnicities, faiths and belief systems, economic brackets and ideologies. In a seemingly innocent and neutral zone (though nothing is ever innocent and neutral). In this series of drone images, we find Johannesburg funambulists: people and systems which navigate and circumvent its divides and thresholds."
