‘From the streets of Joburg to the streets of the world’ is the tagline of this innovative studio. An outlet for former street kids who receive photography training through the I Was Shot Foundation, Bernard Viljoen started this photography project in 2009 in unusual circumstances. A three-month community-service stint, where he committed to working at a children’s shelter to train youngsters to take photographs with disposable cameras, is today a platform for providing young men with skills that have brought access to opportunities previously beyond their reach. The confidence that stems from this is inestimable, as is the value of having the means to earn a living.

Today iwasshot in joburg :) produces a range of products that include mounted canvases of their unique urban photographs, T-shirts, notebooks, cushions, photo frames and corporate gifts, selling them from their studio in Maboneng, a kiosk in Rosebank Mall and online.
