Winter 2017’s superstorm must go down in the annals of history as one the Cape’s biggest yet. What a privilege to be in the thick of it on a weekday with the family. Needless to say we were beaming once dried and back in our warm little abode. Some copious desalination of my new Tamron 70-200mm required!
I decided to go all out for my last lesson’s training with up and coming photographers studying at the Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography 2 weeks ago. Thys Lombard connected me with Keenan Horn, a rising star in the South African Hockey team. Kevin Winzler’s project with the Utah Football team and a bag of my wife’s cake flower inspired a “cooking” collaboration. As the old adage goes, there is no “I” in team, so a big shout out to Keenan, Thys and a special mention to my students in the Certificate class of 2017.
This is my first concept work towards a solo exhibition. It’s inspired by Nick Knight’s book entitled “Flora”.
