As I kid I would go and sit in the CNA – our biggest bookstore in the 70s, and look at all the pictures in the Time Magazine. We had all manner of censorship in South Africa – but somehow Time made it through. And on it’s pages, I got to see and learn things that we could only dream of in our sleepy suburbs.
Online publishing has changed the slow leafing through those of beautifully printed pages – where the magazine knew to let the images do the talking. Now we can flick through them in seconds online – not lingering because we are tempted by other photo essays on offer.
The experience may have changed – but the need to smile hasn’t. And all of these pictures depict moments of simple joy and connection. They made our week. We hope they add to yours.
