Born Free Generation

Simoney Kock, 19, lives in the industrial town of Atlantis, 40 km outside of Cape Town. She is 5 months pregnant and lives with her parents, 3 sisters and 9 nieces and nephews in their two-bedroom house. The father of her child is in prison for possession of an illegal firearm. “I did dream of becoming a model but I’m pregnant now. I want to look for a better life. I want to be a mother to my child, not be like the other mothers who are drinking all the time. I’d like to travel and do acting. Now I’m pregnant everything has stopped.” Alexia Webster/The Stand
