Born on new-years day in the small mining town, Utrecht in Natal, South Africa, I have lived in various places in South Africa, Rotterdam and London. I discovered my passion for photography in 1999 and have since been developing my style from black&white film to digital.
After living in Cape Town for 10 years, I exchanged city life for 2.5 years of traditional life amongst the amaXhosa people in the rural Transkei. I formed a close bond with the people and worked on my most important project up to date entitled 'Madiba’s People'. Focusing on portraits of the amaXhosa People in the townships and the rural Transkei homelands.
I have since returned to civilization, living on a farm in the Winelands area and continue to develop my unique style and promote my photography, aiming to return to my family in the Transkei on a yearly basis. Recently I had the opportunity to work on a three month project about migration in the Swiss Alps.
