About South Africa's young people born
post-apartheid

Born Free Generation by

View caseAgency

A personal project about the 25th anniversary of South Africa's democracy by Dutch photo journalist Ilvy Njiokiktjien. In 1994 the first inclusive elections made Mandela the first black president. Apartheid ended, but the aftermath continues 25 years later. This amazing, eye-opening, interactive project - ranging over 12 years - is about young people born in the years right after apartheid ended, and who are now young adults: the Born Free Generation.

This interactive journal created by Ilvy, together with Dutch web development studio Reinier Martin and fellow visual journalist Henrik Kastenskov, takes a look into how free the born-frees really are, and how modern-day racism influences their day-to-day lives. Their stories are about social change, freedom, humanity, (in)equality and diversity. An impactful journey of images sharing a broad range of individuals and life experiences.

'I want to show the world that there is this generation of young South Africans with such incredible willpower to reach their goals, sometimes even without jobs. They are getting things done, because they try so hard. I believe they will create a positive future for South Africa.'
(Ilvy Njiokiktjien)

Great idea. Beautiful, strong visual structure. Love how the screens are split, telling you two different stories at the same time. Different from a regular ‘scroll’ story.
