There are many places in South Africa that are connected through their names with sites of conflict around the world. Beirut in Alexandra, Johannesburg is just one example and was named when hostel violence erupted in the area in the early 1990s and references the Lebanese civil war. Svea Josephy presents photographic diptychs and triptychs accompanied by texts, which explore what these connections mean to the communities that adopted these names.
