These vintage-style portraits were taken by Amsterdam-based photographer Julia Gunther, and features seven of her closest friends.
Although she is based in Europe, Julia also shoots down in Cape Town. Last year, we shared her brave but tragic photographs documenting a friend’s fight against cancer. View Philipa’s story here, and the updated post here.
Julia is currently preparing for an upcoming exhibition in Amsterdam, Rainbow Girls, featuring portraits of proud lesbian women from Gugulethu and Khayelitsha. We’ll share a selection of the portraits soon.
