Through his ongoing series Golden Youth, Kruger documents new trends in Johannesburg’s youth culture. Artist Oliver Kruger finds his subjects in the urban metropolises of Johannesburg and uses portraiture to expand on the aesthetics and tradition of African studio photography. I love how photography can capture what is happening individual portraits but together as a collection can capture a larger movement or transformation.
