RESILIENCE:

Portraits of a New South Africa.

Paradigm Shift has launched its first full-color coffee table book called RESILIENCE: PORTRAITS OF A NEW SOUTH AFRICA. It stunningly depicts the beauty, challenges and possibilities of entrepreneurship in South Africa. This thought-provoking book offers a timely tribute to South Africa’s continuing journey of transformation now 22 years post-apartheid.

Juxtaposing the darkness of poverty with the beauty of a hope-filled future, the photography brings into focus 24 incredible entrepreneur portraits and their stories— each which reflect sheer resilience.

The photos were taken by New York City-based photographer Stephen Elliot, who is renowned for his gift of capturing photos that engage our emotions and awaken our imaginations. As Stephen traveled South Africa to photograph these entrepreneurs, he bore witness to their legacy and was forever changed.
