"Every #photographer should have [ link hidden ]" - Me
An imaginary reality
I’m primary a [ link hidden ]. I live in [ link hidden ]apier, South Africa, together with the love of my life who is also a bit quirky at times and creates the most wonderful [ link hidden ]. We are not mainstream people as you probably figured out.
My pictures are beyond real although most look like it. Sometimes I add something but always I play with perspectives.
My images are an autobiographic fiction; a trendy word for that is ‘faction’. You might wonder which part is autobiographic and which part is the fiction. And; is it fiction or is it fantasy? “Fiction is it when the described events could have happened in reality. Fantasy is it when the impossible is described,” a friend said once.
I have an associative mindset. Seeing, feeling, hearing or smelling a ‘reality’ is always associated (bridged) with another possible or imaginary reality. I'm inspired by mythology.
Once ordered there is no way back. Let's be honest; printing on high quality archival paper is very, very expensive.
There are only 10 (numbered) prints per image available. Copyright notice and image-number are hand-written on the back of each print.
