A short distance from Durban lies the rolling hills of KwaZulu-Natal. From the Zulu villages around the province to the battlefields of the Zulu-Boer-British wars; KwaZulu Natal's lush landscape is full of local culture and history.

Lola expresses the joy she has as a photographer in capturing the vibrancy of the people, culture and landscape through her lens, as she journeys through this majestic province of South Africa.
