“They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To” ~ Mary Sibande
Mary Sibande is a South African artist based in Johannesburg.

My sister is coming in on Friday, and my life partner/colleague from my MA is coming in on the 13th. My sister and I have opted for a weekend at Lake Windermere (train travel time), so we won’t be travelling to Whitby. However, the life partner and I … well, we have hired a car for a week … and … well, we’re all up for an adventure.

Beard, eyebrows, piercing - husband
Biggie ups random stranger for looking like my future son <3

Marie Bola carries a water bucket, in her village of Mabala. The country’s drinking water coverage remains among the lowest worldwide.
