Ponte City: Photography Series by Dimitar Karanikolov

Published Sep 21, 2018

UK-based architect and photographer Dimitar Karanikolov captured these impressive images using his trusty Leica Q camera at the Ponte City Tower in Johannesburg.

“Ponte city tower is probably the most amazing and also terrifying piece of dystopian architecture I’ve ever seen.

The 55 stories tower in Johannesburg is the tallest residential building in Africa and was used as a location to film ‘District 9’, ‘Chappie’ and ‘Resident Evil’. By the 1990s, many gangs moved into the building and it became extremely unsafe. Ponte City was symbolic of the crime and urban decay. The core filled with debris fourteen storeys high as the owners left the building. There were even proposals to turn the building into a highrise prison! A place with a dark past but a bright future.

Many thanks to the lovely young people from Dlalanje for helping me make these shots!”
