Nommers 06/17/2011. Blikkiesdorp, Cape Town. South Africa. Children playing in the streets, wearing home- made raincoats from garbage bags. It is obvious who their role models are. Die "nommer " or prison number system is also present in this informal settlement. In an interview with Africa is a Country in a story written by Sean Jacobs. "The People From Blikies", Sean asked me about this. "The children are wearing makeshift raincoats and throwing up gang signs–Sean." I answered: This saddened me from the very beginning. Gangs, 28’s and 27’s, are the role models in this society. It is very rare that you would find children that would not pose without giving you a “nommer” (gang sign; literally “number”). This is the reality and if you ask them about it they will share their stories and their understanding. They don’t know anything better. However, what I find inspirational about Blikkiesdorp is that the people always use creative ideas to overcome obstacles, the “raincoat” is a good example of this. These “raincoats” are made out of plastic bags they pick up in the garbage bins. These garbage bins are an endless source of entertainment for the children. They also make kites out of these garbage bags. This is what they do. It is normal to them. Some of them even make their own “raincoats” when they go to school. Photo Lizane Louw
