Street Portraits: A South African Family Album

Tired of a world where photos are so often taken, but so rarely given, Alexia Webster created  free outdoor photo studios on street corners around the country.

The images in this series are from five street studios that were set up in Hillbrow in Johannesburg, Woodstock, Blikkiesdorp, Du Noon and Cape Town city center. She invited passing families, individuals and groups of friends to pose at this temporary studio, and they received a free photograph on site to take home with them for their family album.
