Taking Washing to the River


In most parts of southern Africa, rural villages get their water from scattered well points, boreholes and rivers. Collecting water can be an arduous task and may involve a twice daily walk of several kilometres. Women from adjoining villages often walk together, heavy containers of water balancing on the heads as they traverse dusty footpaths. As strenuous as their efforts are, the women often use this time to catch up with friends, to avail themselves of the latest village gossip and to maintain the strong social bonds that help create a vibrant community.

With his bold strokes and dazzling use of colour, Lloyd Charakupa effortlessly captures the essence and vitality of rural life in southern Africa.
