Originally from South Africa, I grew up in Namibia and am currently living in Shanghai, China. Being a painter and a photographer, I made the decision a few months ago to take the tools of my trade on a journey. Having been led to the East it feels as though my imagination and capacity for creativity have been shaken to their core. Shanghai is a city so congested with life that it can be overwhelming at times. As way of anchoring myself I drew my attention to the every-day hustle and bustle surrounding me. By photographing small and seemingly insignificant every-day things, I struck up a silent and meandering conversation with Shanghai.
