A portrait of Thelma and Matin shot for the multimedia documentary project "I See You With My Heart" on interracial relationships in post-apartheid South Africa.
Thelma and Matin, Pretoria North, October 2015.
Thelma is a 23 year-old Black South African born in Rustenberg. Matin is a 31 year-old South African born in Durban and raised in a traditional Hindu family. They met in 2009 and first became very good friends. When they started to date each other, both families were shocked especially Matin’s, whose parents are very traditionalist and expect him to be with and marry a Hindu woman. Matin has been torn since between his love for Thelma and the fear to lose his parents if he’s moving forward with her. © Miora Rajaonary
