I came across this group of Basotho's in the Free State town of Fouriesburg. They stared at the camera without any emotion and as if trying to look through me. I shot two shots and got back into my car and drove off. I watched in the rear view mirror, they didn't even give me a second glance.

Ja, dadelik herken as basoetoe-komberse. Dis darem 'n nasionale herkennigsoomblik, so goed deur jou as straattoneel vasgevang.

I like the eye contact by the man on the left. He captivates me. It is a very unbalanced photo. His eyes draw me in way left, and then one of the other men is looking in his direction, so it draws my eye back. But I think unbalanced is good. The scene shouts inequality and socio-economic inbalance, so the composition fits the themes.

The highlights are really blown out, which takes away from the overall image.
