Female / Cape Town/Photographer/Digital Designer
I tend to look on the gloomy side of life, despite the kind of things I photograph. It’s easy to forget that we’re surrounded by beauty as it often gets overshadowed by the darker stuff. Seeking and capturing that beauty is what I love most about photography. It’s about emotion and personal expression. I find macrophotography particularly fascinating. Looking at things a little closer reveals a whole other world. It’s like magic. My inspirations include nature, music, mythology and dreams.

I’ve dabbled in many techniques and styles, though no other series has been quite as successful as Iron Animals. I just had this sudden urge one night to create animals made from urban decay. Some sort of play on evolution, asking what happens when an animal’s natural habitat has all but vanished? Iron Animals is a set of grungy photo manipulations that blend matte painting with graffiti influences to a point that nothing of the original remains.

Female /Johannesburg /Conceptual stylist
I am inspired by everything around me, including current affairs, music, films and photography. Every shoot is a collaborative effort. Steve Marais and JP Hanekom are incredible photographers and conceptual innovators and we structure shoots around mutual input. I have also worked with amazing makeup artists and hairstylists that transform shoots into something really beautiful. I would define my creative style as classic: I want to create images that are timeless.
