Beaulas Gcwabe, a hair saloon owner talking on her mobile phone outside a shack on August 23, 2001 in Site C Khayelitsha, a township about 35 kilometers outside Cape Town, South Africa. She's dressed in a traditional Xhosa dress and is attending a bridal shower in the township. Khayelitsha is one of the poorest and fastest growing townships in South Africa. People usually come from the rural areas in Eastern Cape province to find work as maids and laborers. Most people don't find work and the unemployment rate is very high, together with lot of violence and a growing HIV-Aids epidemic itÕs a harsh area to live in..©Per-Anders Pettersson/ iAfrika Photos.
