Introduction

During the Tunisian Revolution of Dignity of January 2011, many cars of local car dealers who were connected and associated with the ex-President's family clan were publicly demolished and some burned. Later, many of these wrecks were brought to a field in Carthage-Byrsa. Last Sunday, 27th February, art and architecture students, joined by local residents, painted on the remains of these cars to express their joy about the revolution and hope for the future.

South African Township Barbershops & Salons

From the rural communities of Dzanini, close the border of Zimbabwe, through to neighborhoods of Khayelitsha in Africa's southern most city, the informal barbershop and hair salon play an important part in township life. These businesses are a place where getting your hair cut or styled is sometimes an afterthought. - Simon Weller. View This Gallery
