What advice would you give a young woman who wants to become a doctor in Zimbabwe? Just go for it! People will tell you that you won’t make it, but just stay focused. If being a doctor is your dream, then follow through with it. It will be worth it in the end!

Benedicte Kurzen’s series Ghetto’s Bling.

Overlooking the stereotypical title and the reductive manner in which the accompanying text, written by Kurzen and Sophie Bouillon, describe the post-Apartheid socio-economic dynamics and aspirations of two of individuals that Kurzen encounters on his photographic exploration of ‘new wealth’ in Soweto as he writes, “the real social promotion is to actually leave the township and move into the old white-only neighborhood” - as though whiteness, as opposed to wealth, is the real measure of success amongst black people - some of these photographs show a side of life that many black South Africans never had the opportunity to experience under the racially systematic oppressive Apartheid government.

Although there are still parts of the township that are in desperate needs of greater access to resources and better living standards, the freedom to aspire and obtain previously denied wealth is perhaps indicative of the progress being made in the developments of Soweto and the overall black middle class population in South Africa.

However, the distribution of wealth outside of the minority white population is still a long way coming. Economically, black people, who make up the majority of the population in South Africa, are still at a great disadvantage due to the crippling policies enacted and imposed by the Apartheid system.

Acquisition and access to the nation’s wealth is still a concern for many black South Africans. The level of poverty in the country has decreased since the ending of Apartheid, however, the level of inequality has increased rising from 0.64 to 0.67 between 1995 and 2008, and black people still make up the vast majority of the poor in South Africa.
