Ever since seeing Sebastio Selgado’s “Workers” book way back in 1999, I knew that social documentary is what photography meant to me. Since then I’ve always captured many “stories” related to what I see as “Life.”
My most in depth story has been the commissioning and photographing of the annual, maintenance shut down that takes place on the slopes of Table Mountain –engineering on a grand scale in a very unique environment. These images resulted in a book – Changing The Lines.
Due to my love of this style of photography I also photographed the train-line between Cape Town and Simonstown which resulted in a book. Down The Line is an honest documentary about commuting life in South Africa.
Besides having been commissioned to photograph engineering project review books, and reportage photographs for various companies I’ve also had my photo essays with text published in both local and international publications.
