Faces at the exhibition

Now the Arts Festival is all over and the dust has settled it’s time to share a few of my faces from the exhibition.

My former student, Meagen, was a welcome visitor towards the end of the 11 day run.  The eyes in the frame behind give a fun effect to her picture. The young woman with the tree earring came in one day and kindly agreed to pose in front of the Green Men pictures – Harry Owen pointed out that the Green Man appears to be looking back out at her!  Outside every day was Desmond, , our friendly car guard, ready to greet you, help out and very much part of the scene.  One morning I experimented with some new effects and did an overlay of two festinos studying my pictures as the light angled across them from the window.  Then, in the last picture, I had a chance to photograph one of the Rhodes’ Fine Art students (I’m afraid I don’t know her name), she is the red head who is posing in front of the aloes.

It was opportunistic but I think I’ve got some nice pictures and they bring out the memories of #NAF17.

The Grahamstown Winter Series

I thought it was fitting to have six pictures from my Grahamstown Winter Series in the exhibition. They are all taken looking north, into the low angle winter light, through the mist and smoke so typical of this time of year.
