04.15.13 Thinking of Ishmael

leave a comment »

Ishmael Sondag on the Sea Point Promenade in Cape Town, South Africa.  This picture was taken in June 2011, about one month before Ishmael disappeared from the streets. Naomi and I believe he gave a false name when arrested for tik and is subsequently lost in the system at Pollsmoor Maximum Security Prison or has returned to his family in Bloemfontein. Read more about this project here.

Tsitso in front his makeshift tent that is located on a cliff between Sea Point and Camps Bay.  He moved here from his previous encampment close to the promenade in hopes that it would be more difficult for the police to harass him.  Read more about this project here.

Today Tsitso told me that Ishmael is in jail.  He’s serving six months in Pollsmoor, a maximum security prison in the Cape Town suburb of Tokai. The most famous inmate of Pollsmoor was Nelson Mandela.

12.23.11 Naomi: Friend of Ishmael

with one comment

Naomi told me that Ishmael isn’t around anymore. She thinks he went home to Bloemfontein. She doesn’t think he’s in jail because she would have heard. She hopes he’s not dead.
