Launch of new body of work and book on the heritage buildings and cityscapes of the old Johannesburg CBD. In the words of acclaimed author and urban consultant Neil Fraser, de Mervelec "presents the city in all its beauty and yet its starkness, its fine detailing and sometimes coarse decorations, its modern freshness and yet its often faded charm - its tragic secrets of political separation and inhumanity and its great hope for its democratic future. He has brought the essence of this great, pulsing, exciting and, for me, crassly beautiful urban conurbation, to life through his lens. This is a book to savour and cherish".
