Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa

I was really inspired by the vibrant colors and gemstone-like appearance of this sprawling suburban area of Johannesburg. While Soweto may be relatively unfamiliar to many, its historical and cultural significance in South Africa since its establishment in the 1930s is undeniable. Presently, the township boasts a cultural resonance so profound that numerous songs celebrate its unique identity, elevating it to the status of a city in its own right.

Although I haven't personally visited Soweto, the structural intricacies and captivating color palette of its neighborhoods have captivated me. Cream-colored houses and buildings align along predominantly tree-less, burnt-orange streets, weaving a maze-like pattern that contributes to the area's distinctive character.
