Through the eyes of a Comics Journalist

Comics Journalism has experienced an awakening in recent years. Hosted by the French Institute of South Africa and the Goethe Institute, one of the most talented Comics Journalists, a.k.a Hippolyte,  was recently on residency in Cape Town. The residency was centered on the theme of Migration, and Hippolyte used this opportunity to collect life stories of the residents of Cape Town. Bringing Humanity to the harsh reality of city living, Hippolyte's drawings brings to light those personalities that society has a tendency to ignore.
