As I grew older dopamine and serotonin replenishment was the task of girls, and not photography, until I started studying and the University of Stellenbosch. There I found my love again and often traveled with art students on their afternoon homework sessions (tuts) seeking inspiration and material to satisfy the lecturer’s or teacher’s lack of excitement in his work. Strangely enough instead of studying agriculture I found myself spread over the half exposed pseudo artwork at university. Wishing I was them and they me.
Even after I graduated I found myself again in the dark rooms with dinosaurs stretching to the ceiling and doing test strips of the most mundane images. The fact that I was doing it, just boosted my serotonin and if someone asked if I could stay there the night and ‘work’ it would have felt like a promotion.
Anyway, I’m here now. Multiple decades have passed and I have the freedom and hopefully the insight to express what I love very deeply.
This is an adventure. I have no idea what else to call it. It’s not a job. I have no pressure. I have no clients to push me around.
I only have inspiration and the promise of a sweet high going down my spine and ‘soul’ taking the next image.
I don’t care what you think of it. I don’t need any scoring or critique. I have freed my insecurities from that chain. But I do hope you will enjoy looking and if you wonder how the heck I took some of these shots, don’t ask, cause I don’t remember myself.
