Johannesburg is one of the world's most successful mining stories; here Larkin explores the vast waste dumps that have resulted from this business, territory where history, economy and contemporary South African collide. Over the decades, life on and around these dormant and toxic remains has developed. Forgotten by owners and ignored by their neighbours, a quiet interaction has existed between these spaces and modern day urban centres. However as the price of gold spikes, great change is underway that leaves life in Johannesburg uncertain.
