"Between Dogs & Wolves" is the culmination of over ten years
work by the award winning South African photographer Jodi Bieber.
Beginning in 1994 after South Africa's first democratic elections,
the book focuses on a generation of young people growing up on the
fringes of South African society. Bieber takes us into one of the
toughest neighbourhoods of Johannesburg - into a world where gangs
rule, where children live with HIV/Aids, and where prostitutes vary
their rates depending on the colour of their clients. We meet
David, a 19 year-old living life on the edge, in the poor white
neighbourhood of Fitas; but we also discover children training as
dancers and musicians, as well as a father and son trapeze act -
all have their dreams of escaping their reality. This is a book
that deals with the loss of innocence, and the instinct for
survival - metaphors for the struggle that South Africa itself has
faced over many decades. It is a world that resonates powerfully
with both dreams and failures.
