Behind-the-Scenes Story:
Through a friend of a friend, we found Mr. Zsa Zsa Zsa, who kindly took us to the shack in Khayelitsha (Cape Town’s largest township) we were looking for: Pink, with a view.

He helped me ask the owner if she would mind if we wrapped her shack & photographed it. She seemed to be rather amused, signed the “model release form”, & that was that! We had a handful of women and children quietly watch us during the process.

Special thanks to Tracy from Shine Shine Fabrics for letting us use her Obama fabric.

Mwah to you all!: including Ms. Tracy Shine Shine, Mr. Zsa Zsa Zsa, the owner of the pink shack, my lovely assistant Jessica Collins, & my rockstar photographer Charley Pollard
