African Feet

‘AFRICAN FEET’

One of the best sold photographs from South Africa. Came in the spotlight during the UNESCO exhibition ‘The Invisible Visible’ in Oslo (Norway) in 2017/18. Since then travelling around the globe. In the USA alone over 300 prints sold (via a third party). In our own Overberg District in South Africa there is (at least) one hanging in virtually every town/village. Reason for us to stop marketing this monumental photograph within South Africa.

Photography: Herman van Bon

More prints of other work of Herman van Bon available at Studio98 along the main road in Napier, South Africa.

African Feet

This picture (exhibited at the UNESCO  exhibition ‘The invisible visible’ in Oslo, Norway sometime ago) say a lot about Africa.

For me it’s a meaningful picture.

And it was shot by co-incidence. What happened? I did a model shoot. In between the model polished her nails (and spoiled a bit – enlarge the picture). After that the stylist started working on the model’s face; out of boredom I just made a shot of her feet. And they tell a story, don’t they?

 

“African Feet” in Oslo

Four of my images selected for the exhibition “The invisible visible” in Oslo, Norway, for the VI International Week of Arts Education by UNESCO.  One for the four  is “African Feet”. The others are the ones of an informal shop in an informal settlement and two of ‘The Shepherd of Standord’. Exhibition runs from 22 May to 1 June. Plus there is a virtual one on a website (just have to figure out which one).
