Emil and the rest of the Limephoto team have been embedded in the Cane and Rural Development unit of Tongaat Huletts since 2012. The relationship started in order to cover the rural sports day events that are sponsored by Huletts in the Zululand area. From there a rletionship formed such that Limephoto are now involved at most CRDU events throughout the year. The purpose is twofold: as a photographic record of social development, but also to highlight and celebrate the communities that Tongaat Huletts support through their extension programmes.
Over the years a body of work has developed from education to health and welfare and on to sport and food security. The images form a rich database of the people and lives that the CRDU have affected over the years.
