Day One is an independent publishing company based in Cape Town, South Africa. Day One produces what it terms ‘new Africana’. Its projects explore a contemporary vision of South African life and culture. Founded in 2005 by creative Stephan le Roux, photographer Stan Engelbrecht, and writer Tamsen de Beer, the team have together, or separately, published five books under the Day One name. Their loose association sees them working together occasionally on projects under the Day One banner, but more frequently on independent projects, sometimes unrelated to publishing.
