About

Hi I’m Michelle Viljoen, a Cape Town based street photographer and creative director. Papercitylife was originally created as a personal photo diary in order to share the moments that I have captured, but as things go I recently decided to expand Papercitylife into a blog about all things photography, travel and anything else that catches my eye.

If you’d like to chat about a possible project or collaboration please get in touch!

My day job is running my design agency, so if you’re interested in having a look at what we do there head over to Studio Co.

  • Monday blur. It's a big week for @st_dio.co 🙌🖤 a ton of work to get done but somehow we'll do it.

Happy Monday friends.

I'll be honest with you. The flu has properly hit me over the head. I feel like slightly warmed up death. You know that last little bit of tea that nobody ever drinks? Yup. Except worse than that. Someone send in reinforcements in the form of a new body.

  • We put so much pressure on ourselves daily to show the world how great everything is - it's get a bit much at times, and it's often not healthy. So this is just a reminder to everyone that we don't always have to be okay. It's okay to lean on others for support and to reach out when shit gets tough. You're not alone 🖤 life is very often not a ray of sunshine and that's okay. xx
