SOUTH AFRICA EVERYONE LIVE IN THE SAME PLAYS LIKE BEFORE BLACK WHITE & COLOURED

My series shows the hard side of life in South Africa using portraits and landscapes. My portraits are frontal taken at eye level,looking directly and ahead, the face cast in shadow showing a strong and determined expression.The portraits are evident that the person is the subject of interest reflecting the face of the person using no background to provide context or embellishment. Besides the portraits, landscapes also form part of my series: houses and cottages shown as a shell and then expanded to reflect the vast expanses of the Cape Town and Johannesburg landscapes. What connects the photographs is the impressive natural light of South Africa. It testifies to an immediacy, an instantaneous and honest encounter that places the object at the center.
