Upward Mobilityby Paul Samuels / 23.07.2013
Paul Samuels has been taking pictures since he was a laaitie, inspired by the cameras his dad used to leave around the house. Assistant to some big commercial photographers in Joburg, he’s spent time travelling the country taking photos of its towns and their people. His focus is turning to Europe: a body of his work Present Tense is on show at the Gulbenkian in Portugal, and will move to a gallery in Paris this September. We sent him to the Puma Social Club on Friday night. Here’s what he saw.
