A special delivery

After numerous commissions of ‘African Feet’ within South Africa and abroad I delivered one this morning to Suretha Visser of ‘Therapy Bredasdorp’ in the Matthee Street in Bredasdorp. 
Suretha is a fully certified and accredited beauty- and physiotherapist and the only certified one in the region specialised in ‘spinal allignment’.
‘African Feet’ began its ‘march around the globe’ in December 2016/January2017 when it was exhibited at the UNESCO-exhibition ‘The Invisible Visible’ in Oslo, Norway together with two of other photographs I made (‘The Shepherd of Stanford’ and ‘Shopping in Hopland’ which is an informal settlement in Stanford)

The ‘Metaphoorto’

From yesterday to 10 October:

I call it a ‘metaphoorto’ 
It was first exhibited during the UNESCO exhibition ‘The Invisible-Visible’ in Oslo (Norway) last year together with two other pictures of me. Selected by curator Georgeta Negrini (former photography curator of Prado in Madrid) amongst work of 128 other photographers around the globe. Since Oslo ‘African Feet’ is travelling the world (via UNESCO). From August 9 to October 10 of this year a print  is on display during the exhibition ‘Contemporary Art Africa’ in Ilienworth, Cuxhaven, Germany. I’m one of the 70 chosen artists of the African Continent.
Prints on 300 gsm Hahnemuller paper of 120x80cm are made available for sale. This exhibition is curated by Samuel Fleiner.

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).
