This collection comes to you from Jo’burg, the home of Marianne Fassler and her creative collective, Leopard Frock.
Jo’burg is a modern African city, the economic powerhouse of South Africa, also
described as the ‘New Babylon, the New Nineveh’… still the place to find whatever
personal ‘gold’ you are looking for.
This is a portrait of a cosmopolitan city, forever drawing people from the Continent,
China, India, Eastern Europe and other restless places, in search of a better or a
different life. Joburg will always be a city in transition, bound by the potential for
change and the possibility of greatness.
But, it’s also a huge urban jungle, a city where trees outnumber people. Joburg is the
world’s largest urban forest with in excess of 10 million trees.
