The Village Museum

Recently I had a photoshoot in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek in the Western Cape, South Africa. Easy going models = hassle-free work + time-saving so we had an hour to quickly pop in the ‘Dorp Museum’ (Village Museum) in Stellenbosch. It was four years since I’d been in that place but it is certainly going downwards with this town with unreadable  signage and street names (or none of them all) and staff of the tourism bureau that had never heard of the museum (the fourth one ‘knew about it’…). Still the museum is there with ‘coloured people’ (seemingly cheaper than white staff) presenting themselves as colonial housewives and honestly; they did an excellent job in keeping up appearances 😉 .

I made some shots and virtually all (the ‘spooky’ one at the end is in colour) I processed them vintage-style.
