adidas Originals EQTBorn in the 90’s | An Open Invitation (Watch)

In January adidas Originals started a story that drew the parallel between young born free originals in Johannesburg and the birth of EQT in 90’s Berlin. The focus was placed on individuals being recognised for creating culture and who form part of a unique generation
of creators. In March adidas Originals broke the rhetoric of exclusivity dominating the cultural scene today and moved the focus from the
individual to the people. Now An open invitation went out to South African’s born in the 90’s for an inclusive casting call that utilises a
mobile street studio at locations across Johannesburg. The result was a photo essay of portraits that document a generation.
