Top of Africa

by Alessandro Sala


Around every corner of the city you feel dozens stares pressed on you. You're the lone white man in downtown Johannebsurg.
Caring for your own safety in downtown is based as well on the constant watch of ones who watches at you, to be always in position to decide if rather change your direction, walk on by, get back on your way or start running.
Top of Africa is the highest point of the tallest building of the entire african continent - a visitors terrace where to catch a glimpse of the city 360 degrees-wide.
As I made it to this elusive place designed to host but a few tourist incomers - where never ever any inhabitant went - I understood how roles could be inverted here. Me, the lone white man, now able to look over and control the entire city - every corner, every movement.
