They are private, operate over fixed routes, departing only when full. Tap-taps are painted with bright colors and fancy designs, such as scenes from the Bible, Christian slogans, TV stars or famous football players.

Today we present nine images by Canadian photographer Adam Makarenko from his recent Northern Highways & Rockcuts project. Influenced by science and nature, Makarenko creates a vivid tableau vivant through miniatures, which he photographs into poignant visual narratives concerned with human intervention in nature. Makarenko won the Magenta Foundation’s Bright Spark Award in 2008.
Below the images, Makarenko and PDN’s Darren Ching discuss working with miniatures and the inspiration for this project.
