Mashile is clear in his views of what South Africa has and has not achieved since 1994 and despairs at the socio-political and socio-economic realities of the country. He is keenly aware of the hypocrisy of the country’s leadership and is troubled by the continued poverty and inequality that is still so much in evidence. In these prints, Mashile examines the relationship between media, aspiration and consumption and those who struggle to survive on the edges of urban life. The images focus on waste pickers who inadvertently take care of the environment by recycling what the wealthy discard. The animal shadow suggests an alter ego.
