2005/09 – South Africa
In 2005 I started a journey traveling South Africa, photographing disappearing landscapes under a mantle of darkened skies.
As blackened cumulus-nimbus clouds are uncommon in the South African countryside, each photograph is a moment captured in time, never to be repeated – I have gone back, six, seven, even a dozen times just to capture Nimbus’s form over a particular landscape. Often finding some of the scenery had disappeared through commercial exploitation and nature.
My self-indulgence is private. But with some coaxing from Mike Freedman, the support of Greg Garden of Nedbank and the timely arrival of Cape Town ‘Festival of photography’ in 2012, it was an opportunity to reveal the ever-increasing plight of the South African koppies.
This Vintage Film Collection “Shadows Over Stones” was originally exhibited at Nedbank, Waterfront, Cape Town in 2012 and is now available as special limited edition prints, framed or unframed.
