During the 2010 FIFA World Cup, I documented the ordinary man and the country’s hopes. FIFA was supposed to help with infrastructure, people had hoped to benefit from the event, but not everyone benefited. The small towns and cities suffered the same fate; the trickle effect from the World Cup did not reach certain places and people. For most South Africans, nothing has changed. Hopes and dreams were invested in the improved infrastructure and the economic ingestion of funds. Hopes were left shattered. This selection focuses on “sustainable hopes”.
