are we done yet?

Another extraordinary year! We’re in the premier league of nations where crazy things happen at a staggering rate. Some of it is nonsensical, even laughable, but a lot of it is calculated and criminal. Imagine you’re the finance minister: one minute later you’re not; one day you’re facing fraud charges, the next you’re free to go. Imagine you’re a university student: one minute you’re learning, the next you’re in a fee-fallist free fall, having to unlearn stuff. Imagine you’re free, the next moment captured. Actually you don’t need to imagine that, it happened. Imagine for a moment you’re Brian Dudu Myeni-Molefe: one minute you’re rolling in the money and rolling it out to pals, the next minute you’re bust. But this year, with the astute help of the public protector,…

A fine art graduate and fashion photographer based in New York, Swales is inspired by the extremes of beauty. His admiration for designers and model muses is evident in his work that celebrates clothing as an art form. Bulgarian by birth and human by persuasion, Borissov found his way into photography after a stint in corporate banking. He’s been living on the road since 2009, but spends most time in Paris, London and Cape Town. Roberts loves taking photos, whether it’s of strangers posing on a dance floor or in a studio surrounded by lights. He seldom leaves home without his camera, and enjoys the way pictures can change in meaning over time. At just 22, Oosthuizen has spent the past three years peering through his lens at music gigs, late-night events and…

nicole meyer

Taking a chance to pursue your dreams is a bold step, but one that local model Nicole Meyer took after being spotted by a talent scout at the age of 18. She left her home town of Wellington, 70km outside Cape Town, for a life as an international model and has been blazing her way to the top ever since. ‘I am being present and appreciating what I have now’ With a number of magazine covers, international campaigns (most recently Police and Wonderbra) and fashion shoots under her belt, you’d be forgiven for thinking the bright lights would have gone to her head. But not Meyer, she is as down to earth as they come, and credits the hard work she’s put in. ‘I have realised so many dreams and hopes. I never…

Kagiso Rabada entered the public consciousness as a teenager when he mowed down six Australian batsmen in the semi-final of the 2014 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Following his man of the match performance of 6/25, the fast bowler went on to play a big role in SA’s tournament triumph. Two years later and Rabada is at it again, hammering the Australian senior team and becoming the first player to scoop six awards at the South African Cricket Awards after a stellar season in all three formats of the game. South Africa’s Cricketer of the Year has become the country’s hottest sporting commodity. The affable 21-year-old from Jo’burg appears to be taking the fame and adulation in his stride. He spoke to GQ about his rapid maturation as both a cricketer and a…
