The goldmine that is Johannesburg is more than simply the rock our city rests on; it’s the ground beneath our feet. Stories of streets paved with golden opportunity have spread the length and breadth of the African continent; tales of a place where hope abounds, a place where, surrounded by 5 million other gold seekers, you can still create the life of your dreams. “Hopeless” embodies the magnetic pull of Egoli, the subject walking away from us, casual, confident and self-assured as he embraces his destiny.
