Water, one of the earth’s most plentiful resources and yet the most precious, increasingly occupies a battle-ground as political, commercial, environmental and scientific interests compete to control, channel, and exploit it. It is easy to forget that it is also the principal substance of our bodily being, the nurturer of all life, and a reflector and container of light and beauty. These photographs bring the viewer the gift of waters most rarely noticed, recording moments of intense perception. He says: “They are fleeting moments of ever-changing light patterns created unceasingly by bodies of water. The skin of any water surface is a mirror that plays with light. Ochre and orchard; improbable amber and wavering willow; sienna and cerulean and a violet sky." Here water is ‘held still’ so that we can feel and see the confluence of memory, passion and reverence.
He has held successful exhibitions of his water photographs in the Western Cape and his work hangs in private collections in South Africa, England, USA, Australia, Denmark, France, Japan, Germany and Switzerland.
Both his limited edition prints and open editions are now available online for the first time.
