Land Art by E.S.Kom; The Load Shed

ESKOM, the South African electricity provider, is known for its load shedding. Since 1994 when the ANC took over the reigns in South Africa there was hardly any maintenance, replacements of generators, etc. and certainly no vision; just politics and ‘looting’. On local level ESKOM engineers could not even straighten our the poles, etc. Since a few years there is a new management at ESKOM trying to repossess what was stolen and working on updating the present infrastructure including the introduction of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar (instead of coal).

Selection of 2020

Every year I make a collage of my favourite photos I took during the year. These pictures are not necessarily the ones that have got the most attraction but rather the ones that means the most to me. They represent such huge experiences for me. See also my other website.

That said I am hugely grateful for all of your engagement here on my page. I love my job and I have a burning passion for what i do. Thank you all for making that possible.I have a lot planned for 2021 and I hope it will be full of close encounters, experiences and breathtaking moments. See you all in the field, and happy new year..
