THE BLANKET PEOPLE
South Africa houses the deepest mines on earth, most of them long-abandoned. Gangs visit violence upon each other deep underground, while myths speak of cannibals who stalk the forests above. For Fenya, the mines are the last place his father was ever seen. For the “Zama zama”, independent miners who plunge into the depths of the earth in search of riches, the dream of easy wealth is all too alluring.
