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.
