I am counting down the days… I haven’t been home in over a year. It’s time for Europe. Des and I will spend a couple of weeks in my mother-continent and I can’t wait. Home is calling…

Plus, I just found that the wedding blog capeclassique mentioned us. thanx gaby!
At all the weddings we shoot, the most boring part is usually the time of the family-photos. OMG… usually takes way too long “Okay and now only granny and you…”. Well… I think the pictures should be really crazy with everyone going mad or really awkward and old fashioned. So finding the website awkwardfamilyphotos really inspired me. Enjoy. x
TEETH ARE THE ONLY BONES THAT SHOW… (I love that… awesome!!!)
OPENING: WED 06 OCT 18H00, WHATIFTHEWORLD / GALLERY 208 ALBERT ROAD WOODSTOCK CAPE TOWN
Whatiftheworld is pleased to present the first installment of the ‘Ilulwane Saga’ by Athi-Patra Ruga, entitled Teeth are the only bones that show…
In this exhibition Athi-Patra Ruga elaborates on an already dense personal iconography informed by influences as diverse as pop culture, theology, performance, ritual, and sociopolitical concerns. He presents us with visual propositions that challenge definitions of masculinity and highlight contemporary South African issues around sexuality, wealth, race and consumerism as a framework for identity. Mixing beach balls, Lamborghinis, French baroque, BEE, Cape Flats gangsters, Louis Vuitton, and Xhosa initiation rites, Ruga blends these seemingly disparate elements into his portrait of a complex and fluid society.
Go check it out, whatiftheworld is always an inspiration! x

So lucky to live in Cape Town… went for a breakfast with Des at the super awesome Superette on Saturday morning, went for a quick visit to the WHATIFTHEWORLD gallery (always excellent) and to the new Liam Mooney Store (208 Albert Road, Woodstock) right next door. Cool stuff. Check it out. x Toni
