Well Africa ( and this is a bit of a generalisation) does present a canvas of opportunity, one just has to see beyond every day occurrences to seize the moment, life wherever is full of photographic images just waiting to be taken and then shared with the rest of the world

indeed, so many people searching for an identity to create their own uniqueness, following American trends, when the answer is actually on their own door step, simply Africa simply unique

It's the same here, people following American ''culture'' rather than searching for one in their homeland. 
Keep up the good work with the Photos ;) and show the world the uniqueness of South Africa.

The odd thing about all of this is all cultures all over the world have so much to offer, and considering The Americans are made up of so many cultures from all over the world, I've never really understood what it is that makes them something people should wish to imitate...however this is an on going discussion and probably one with no real answers, I suppose the trick for us photographers is to weed through all the hideous and dreadful imitations and find the real cultural values of the people in our countries

I totally agree! In fact i'd say that it is the job of *all* artists to remove the imitations of some, rather intrusive influences, and to find and advance the culture and values of our own heritage.
