Scamming Your Way to a Better Community

BY JOSH SCHEUERMAN
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 14, 2013

Josh Scheuerman began his career by scamming his way into concerts by posing as photographer. Yet what he was really after was a way to connect with a community he associated with. Those early years led to work at SLUG magazine, which led to Josh publishing his own skate and snowboarding magazines. His art passion led him to start a local art adoption program. Josh's desire to connect with and improve his community has driven much of his life and his selfless actions improve the lives around him and the larger community.

Changing of the cables on Table Mountain

BY GARY HIRSON
@ VOL 48 ON MAY 08, 2018

Every year Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company shuts down for their annual maintenance. Every 4 years the cables that haul the cable cars up and down are changed. Every 6 years the cable cars are completely stripped and refurbished, and every 12 years the cable on which the cars run are re-tensioned.

Since 2005 Gary Hirson has been the only photographer commissioned to photograph this engineering feat. Mid-winter cape weather and tight timelines add to the stresses of completing the task at hand, which has to be completed on time. Local artisans and Swiss engineers work side-by-side to ensure safe passage for future tourists.
