In the book shop

‘Hemingways’ in Hermanus (South Africa) is a real collectors bookshop named after the American writer Ernest Hemingway. I just got the assignment from owners Beth and Noel Hunt to make a photographic document of this unique shop. Once you enter you go back in time. Not only the old books but also the ‘bric and brac’ are a real inspiration for the photographer’s eye.  Tomorrow I’ll be in the shop for 3-4 days for the real job. After that a few weeks battling behind my Apple …

Why I got this assignment? Social Media works: Beth saw the Youtubes about Stanford and my ‘art’ photography which went online last Sunday and said to Noel: “That’s the guy who can do it” and yesterday morning the deal was made. Both insisted that I document the bookshop the way I see it ….

Herewith a few processed ‘snapshots’ to provide you with an idea. All pictures made (candid camera way) from the chair I was sitting in chatting with Beth…
