A young boy in a Johannesburg, South Africa, township finds beauty in the wildflowers along a barbed wire fence. "Nature is a complicated term when it comes to Johannesburg," says photographer Lindokuhle Sobekwa, explaining that people in the townships often don't have enough room for gardens. "Growing up, there were always some flowers that grew near a dumping site that we used to pick and play with."
