Iliso Labantu is a group of photographers who live in the townships around Cape Town, South Africa.

We are using point-and-shoot digital cameras to document our neighborhoods one by one.

Every other month, we meet in a new neighborhood and shoot—all of us—for 48 hours, from sun up on Friday until late on Saturday night. We then edit, print, and laminate the work. On Sunday morning we hang the photographs on the streets for the community to see.

We call these 'Flash Photo Weekends.'

Collectively, we are documenting our lives, our families, our struggles and our accomplishments.

You can be a part of it. Here's how.
