Work I did for NEA Foundation, Pretoria

NEA Foundation, is a non-profit organisation that values the involvement of the public and believes in the contribution which individuals and corporate sponsors can make towards change.

NEA is a Swahili word for “purpose, to prepare the way, to set in motion, to be a starting block”.
We want to be able to move and be in places where the need as well as the potential for change is really big. We want to get involved with the people in the community to start projects required in their specific community and then equip them to take responsibility for their own projects and lives. Our aim as a Non-Profit orgnisation is to prove to them they don’t have to depend on us to do everything, our role is to support them in their dream and purpose, and to encourage them to be what they were meant to be!!!

Legendary Formula 1 engineer and designer, Rory Byrne.

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting and photographing Rory Byrne at Ferrari Viglietti in Bryanston, South Africa.

Rory Byrne is most famous for being the chief designer at the Benetton and Scuderia Ferrari Formula One teams.

Amazingly, 99 of his cars have won Grand Prix.

Story by Pauli van Wyk in Beeld:

Fanie de Villiers, author of ‘Kontrei’ and ‘Werfsonde’, in the streets of Yeoville, Johannesburg.

Fanie de Villiers, writing as Kleinboer, has written a new Afrikaans book, Werfsonde. I was commissioned to take a portrait of him and decided on these pictures.

He stays in Yeoville, that’s why we were in the streets of Yeoville. Yeoville is a predominantly black area and he is of the few white people who still live there.

The images are dark and surreal because he writes about brothels and having sex with black prostitutes.

I used of camera flash with a softbox attached, to the left.

Dragged my shutter to create the blurring of street and car lights.

Used second curtain flash to freeze my subject when and where I wanted to.

Helen Zille at Constitutional Court for Menzi Simelane case

Yesterday the Constitutional Court ruled that Menzi Simelane’s appointment as national director of public prosecutions was invalid.

Menzi wasn’t even there for the ruling, but Helen Zille of the Democratic Alliance was.

Luckily she was there, otherwise I would not have had any pictures for the paper.
