Creating the Narrative

a

The narrative in my social documentaries relates to events in people’s lives and turns it into knowledge for the reader. Social documentaries look for connections and help with explanations to guide with interpretation to the reader.

Travel Stories

Off the beaten track across Southern Africa, backpacking across North America, Canada, Alaska and crossing into the country of the Aztecs and Mayans and sipping mojitos in Havana. Taking a turn into Europa for some Roman culture to driving the scenic roads through the Highlands, Wales and the UK. Dipping your toes into the Mediterranean at Santorini and soaking up the steam in a Turkish Steam bath.

Analogue Processes

Still shooting film as I love the sound of a film shutter and still printing in the darkroom, from pinholes to 35mm to alternative printing processes such as Cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, Salt, Lith, and Kallitype printing. Film photography brings another dimension to photography and teaches patience in a digital era of instant gratification. Slowing down is sometimes more fulfilling than rushing by in life.

Documentaries

In the last decade, I spent time interviewing, filming, and photographing in various corners of South Africa on Social Documentary topics. Spending time with the local population in Lesotho, interviewing a Sangoma in Venda and in the presence of Tribal Queen to the harsh reality of poverty in the cities. Visiting landfill sites where domestic and foreign recyclers live and work, city trolley people, and white poverty in Gauteng. All ended up in academic research projects and applying Ethnography research techniques to capture stores from the Ç‚Khomani San Bushmen in the Kalahari. This began in 2015 and is still ongoing. Resulting in a published book, short-form documentary, and an exhibition.
