Renowned South African photographer Pieter Hugo and Michael Cleary teamed up with local muso/DJ Spoek Mathambo for a video which is a cover of Joy Division's "She's lost control". I'm fully aware that I'm a little late on posting this vid, but in my opinion the calibre of the work allows it. The video has various references to "township cults, street preaches and teen gangs and was shot on location in a squatted train boarding house in Langa, Cape Town". See Spoek's site here and more of Hugo's work here and Cleary's work here. See the full video here. All images are screengrabs from the video.
