Meet a melting pot of Joburgers through a camera lens

Photographer Shayne Robinson has launched an exciting initiative #ThisIsMyJoburg, which shares Joburg people's stories through photographs, videos and storytelling.

This is My Joburg puts Joburgers' stories on the Website, Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.

Robinson said these accounts are a tribute to the wonderful melting pot that is Joburg, home to many thousands of different people from so many varying backgrounds.

Every single one of them has their own story, stories that need to be told. We hope that in telling them, we will slowly start to understand each other, what makes us all tick, where we came from, what our backgrounds are, and most importantly, what our dreams are.

Because, only when we truly understand each other will we finally be on the path to becoming the “Rainbow Nation”.

Robinson and #ThisIsMyJoburg team have recently sneaked into the Secret Sunrise event in Joburg. Of course, with their cameras!

Robinson says the "Secret Sunrise is a community of inclusion built around an interactive dance movement. It is a fun, energetic, mindful, silent disco celebration."

We hope to provide you with daily glimpses into the lives of these “strangers” in the City Of Gold, so that they may become your friends, even if you never meet them.
