20 Reasons We Love Johannesburg

Talented cinematographer Ofentse Mwase has us enthralled with his showstopping grams of Jozi. Follow him @unclescrooch plus check out his cinematographic work here.

Johannesburg has lots to be proud of with the world’s largest urban forest, one of its streets was home to not one, but two, Nobel Peace Prize winners (Vilakazi street in Soweto) and it’s an economic powerhouse that’s going places and so are its people (literally with Africa’s busiest airport). Also not to brag but Jozi’s pretty cool – but we’ll let these photos do the talking:
