Soweto Derby

by Chris Preyser / 17.03.2014

Chris Preyser caught some colourful characters heading to the annual Soweto Derby clash between the mighty rivals Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs at the weekend.

“While I was shooting, I felt a stern tug on my shoulder,” says Chris of his favourite moment. “I turned around, annoyed, and came face to face with a Red Ant; a public security guard in all black uniform and a bright red cap. My first thought was “Oh shit!” I think I gave him a bigger fright ’cause he immediately backed up. Turned out he simply wanted a photo with his friends, but I managed to get this lovely shot of him afterwards, giving me the ‘What you gonna do about it?’ look.”

As for the Derby, if you don’t already know, ‘Chiefs took sweet victory in a tightly contested battle. Here’s some glimpses of loyal fans and festivities from the big day in sunny Soweto.
