Impossible Return | Nonfiction
Anger, hurt, loss, rejection … these feelings are familiar to the families who, in the early 1970s, were forced from their homes in Harfield Village in Cape Town’s southern suburbs. Siona O’Connell brings their stories to light. She examines the lost ways of life, the sense of home and belonging. David Brown’s images show what life was like in Harfield before the removals, and his images are echoed by recent photos of the same former residents.
