5cents a pound

An archive of inspiration, negotiating the world through artistic intervention

Alexia Webster is a freelance photographer born in Johannesburg and based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

Artist Statement:

Tired of a world where photos are so often taken but so rarely given, we created free outdoor photo studios on street corners around the country.

The images in this series are from five street studios that were set up in Hillbrow in Johannesburg, Woodstock, Blikkiesdorp, Du Noon and Cape Town city center. We invited passing families, individuals and groups of friends to pose at this temporary studio, and they received a free photograph on site to take home with them for their family album.
