The combination of image and text in Bill of Rights is designed to present situations that direct the sensibility of a late high school reader, and upwards, towards the South African Bill of Rights. Bill of Rights does so in a way that presents failures in the Bill or its implementation, and also salutes the massive transformative force the document exerts on individuals and institutions 20 years after the advent of Democracy in South Africa.
The book presents a constellation of photographs, each of which implies rights, or a right. Extended captions, which combine statistics, quotes and observations, emphasise the relationship between the photography and the rights being illustrated.
The publication includes an essay by Judge Edwin Cameron from the Constitutional Court entitled What you can do with Rights.
