Mqanduli, Transkei, Eastern Cape, South Africa. August 2010. Linda Bayi returns to his ancestral home to reunited with his extended family and be introduced to the ancvestral spirits - something his partents failed to do. They also rejected Linda - His father at age one and his mother a few years later when she palmed him off onto his grandmother. Like many township children, his father was absent, many men using the migrant labour habit of ignoring children with women as they move onto other relationships. The visit was initated by his paternal aunt, Nobazeleno Nokhaya Gxalaba. Photo Greg Marinovich.
