    I see cool hats, relaxed, sportswear-infused silhouettes, and great style personalities. This South-African series is probably one of my favourite of all times, because it seems like these people just always dress like that.

      I live in Johannesburg and people do always dress like that, particularly in that part of town. Fabulous!

    I especially like the first photo- the green pedicure to match the dress, and the tube dress & sneakers combo.

    I’ve been to Johannesburg. Great place, and I love the fashion too. One of my favourite places to shop is The Space. Its a great place to discover up and coming african designers, and some of the clothes are absolutely gorgeous. My favourite brand being Sway.

  102. Jay

    November 7, 2012 at 5:09 am

    Just an observation but in your time in South Africa it seems like you only photographed black men and women. Did you photograph any other group of people?

  103. diehonest

    November 7, 2012 at 6:28 am

    You would think by these images that there are only black people in South Africa….very disappointing.

  104. galfriendsays

    November 7, 2012 at 8:58 am

    Everyone seems to love the SA pics, not one person has mentioned race or colour or blacks only being photographed. Whats the problem Jay or diehonest? Statistically the black community makes up 80% of the population in our country, you people being the minority. Its great that Scott has presented trully the dynamics of our country. Yes..there’s plenty cool white people out there ,but maybe not enough to catch his eye. I say yay to Scott for being politically correct, maybe this was not his intention but more his artistic eye leading him to great aesthetics.
    I dont want this comment to turn into a racist attack …Just as you observed, this is also my obversvation. Dissapointment happens all the time, deal with it.
