Great Adverts - Japan Special

This is a campaign advert by Shelter Box, truly horrific scenes and a tag line that hits the spot of what we really did when such a terrible event shocked the world. Do your bit a give to a great cause.

Website Update

Yesterday I updated my website, dropping a project, adding one or two new photographs and added some text to support my work. In about three or four weeks from now there will be another series of work added that I am currently shooting, so keep your eyes out for that.

Figures & Fictions - V&A

Nontsikelelo Veleko

Pieter Hugo

Zanele Huholi

Jodi Bieber

Today is the opening day for V&As new exhibition Figures & Fictions which looks at the contemporary photography coming out of South Africa. With a total of seventeen photographers, some with two or three projects of work on display, with the likes of Pieter Hugo, David Goldblatt and Nontsikelelo Veleko among them, this exhibition was in for the win. The exhibition looks at the identity of South African photography as one of the key movements in the fine art world, as well as looking at a post-Apartheid South Africa richness in culture and history. The exhibition revisits history with Jo Ractliffes series Terreno Ocupado to the reconstruction of Muslim life in Hasan and Husain Essops series Halaal Art to gay life in rural areas in Sabelo Mlangenis series Country Girls. The work collected by V&A clearly shows a diverse 21st century country that had a troubled past. Along with this exhibition V&A has set up Lifetimes: Under Apartheid in the photography gallery, which has the works of David Goldblatts during the Apartheid years, which is a bonus and also a very good exhibition to feast your eyes on.

The exhibition is running from the 12 April to the 17 July 2011, so there is no excuse for missing the fantastic work on display.
