Lungile Zakwe, a management consultant, reading a novel during a break from work in Braamfontein, an inner-city neighbourhood in Johannesburg. Only a few minutes' walk from the poverty, overcrowding and drugs of Hillbrow, Braamfontein features manicured green spaces, upmarket boutiques and restaurants, and is home to the Joburg Theatre and the Joburg Ballet. Inner-city Johannesburg is characterised by such contrasts.
