Take a visual journey through the changing landscapes of seven peripheral neighbourhoods on the outskirts of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, and the city regions of Ethekwini and Gauteng (including Johannesburg) in South Africa.

Taken by South African photographer Mark Lewis, the photographs illustrate the rapidly changing urban landscape of these peripheries and what everyday life is like in these spaces.

The project is a visual response to qualitative research into life on the peripheries of Africa’s mega-cities. The research was undertaken by Dr Paula Meth and Dr Tom Goodfellow from the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Sheffield, and colleagues from Wits University in Johannesburg.
