Notes

"Conrad Theys concentrated on the regions of the Cape that were synonymous with his own struggle in life. He felt the atmosphere of the places and strove to record his experience …[He] identified with the humble shanties [of Elsie’s River, Crossroads and other places on the Cape Flats] … The poverty of these humble dwellings was uplifted by loving treatment that pays attention to the surface texture of crumbling walls with many subtle nuances of colour"
Alexander Duffy
