Mud Chic

Mud Chic is a collection of Xhosa homes and interiors captured by Craig Fraser that portray the Xhosa way of life through the homes that they live in. These homes reveal that poverty does little to decrease the human impulse to adorn and beautify. The personality of each home owner is expressed in a rich, elaborate vocabulary of symbols, geometric patterns, colour and decorative detail that is uniquely individual to each. This book is similar to the first collection, Shack Chic, about the decorative interiors of township dwellings and is a definate buy for any coffee table anywhere.
