About this piece

2006 – Clocolan, South Africa

Free State Landscape

I arrived at the Clocolan turn-off. The air-con kept me cool on this hot dusty, blue-sky Free State afternoon. The shimmering haze bent the countryside – windmills looked distorted in a house of mirrors – cows like mutants from a far flung star in a distant galaxy.

Turkey Sandwiches

Keep to the left and you’ll pass the head of Julius Caesar, neatly beheaded and placed on top of a sandstone koppie. For this somber occasion Nimbus cast her shadows into a prevailing wind reflecting Caesar regal ending. He looks east, reviewing his African empire, all the way to the majestic Lesotho Maluti Mountains. A blanket of wild flowers lay in front of me – what a good time to have leftover turkey sandwiches. I like mine, simply with fresh chives, mint and seasoning. And since today was a day of recovery, a healthy cool drink was in need.

Queen of the Matamba’s

It was an extraordinary day. Every ninety minutes Nimbus would change her clothes, and then pour her eyes out. Saddened by my days of waiting, she would build up her dark wings and gush forth again and again. She spent the day rebuilding herself. Her personalities varied according to her mood. Charging across the skies like Nzingha, Queen of the Matamba’s, slaying all her enemies in her path. By early evening she was spent and I was on my way. Blue skies were fading to grey. Not a Dorper or Merino in sight – this is mielie country.

Photographing with Film

The authentic nature of photographing on film is the graining that is produced in its reproductions. However this is a genuine representation of when capturing images on a Hasselblad XPan panoramic film camera.

This Black & White Vintage Film Collection “Shadows Over Stones”, was originally exhibited at Nedbank, Waterfront, Cape Town in 2012.
