A bit of where we live
Model in the making
Abigail Camille is, from young age onwards, dreaming of becoming a photo-model. She’s got the attitude, the body and the beauty including a multitude of faces. So together with Vanilla Boutique in Bredasdorp and Yvonne de Wit Jewellery in Napier we made a little (low resolution) youtube (high resolution on request). Any model agency out there interested???
How I made my ‘Meta Selfie’
58 Overberg Landscapes during the year
Somebody told me the other day that the average painter applies 6 to 7 layers before a painting is finished. I just applied the 75th layer to ‘Unus Mundus’ (One World) and still it’s far from ready. Layers, in my case, are photographs, drawings, textures, digital in-paintings, etc.
Guess I have another 30 to 40 layers to go. Plus some patching here and there.
The imaginary will be printed and framed in the size 180x120cm for a permanent exhibition (until sold) in one of the better art galleries in the Western Cape, South Africa. And there will be only one print available for their clients appreciate (and pay for, I hope 😉 ) exclusivity.
How does my layering work? In the past I already made a youtube with a very simplified example. See: The Meta Selfie
Transmogrify: The Meta Selfie
A photographer always sees more; even in him/herself. Based on one Black & White self-portrait with the use of textures and layers and with merging pictures I created a colourful self-portrait. My ‘Meta Selfie’ or (subtitle) ‘The Art of Being Me’.

This is just a 4 minute rough cut with stills that provides the viewer with some insight in my work.
I’ve just updated my ‘Gallery’ page with three YouTubes; each presenting a part of my photography. See for yourself (link opens in new window).
As an extra herewith a YouTube with a selection of pictures I made during the Napier Patat Fees (Napier Sweet Potato Festival) a few weeks ago. Enjoy.
