Bushveld

 

 

The Bushveld with its iconic trees is one of the most visited places in Southern Africa. People visit this area in the hopes to spot a lion or any of the big five animals and all to often miss the beauty of the bushveld trees with their twisted shapes and ancient secrets.

 

I visited Kruger National Park for the very first time recently. Although I was fortunate enough to see and enjoy the illusive big five and other wildlife, my attention was drawn to the magnificent trees.

 

What struck me was the uniqueness of their shapes.

Possibilities

It is at the source, the wellspring of our feelings, that we may either amplify or transform them. In this print, the artist effectively did both with his eloquent use of rich blacks and accents of bright whites.

Battle of the Giants

The unfolding drama in this image is exceptional. What sets the artist apart from the very large number of contemporary artists working in the medium is his exhilarating use of wide tonal range in his black and white photographs.

Defeat of Perspective

In our perception of the world, spatial and temporal dimensions merely appear to be distinct. Scale depends on one's capacity to be conscious of the actualities of perception. The blank space that the artist has included with this image becomes the free space that invites the viewer to be drawn in closer and experience the landscape from a different perspective.

Mapangubwe Hill

The Kingdom of Mapungubwe founded in 1075. It was an important medieval state located at the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo rivers, south of the Great Zimbabwe. The hill has become an important archaeological site and can still only be reached on foot by a narrow pathway.

The artist places the viewer on this path, surrounded by this incredible landscape, and the sheer force of its existence slaps you in the face. This hill is a UNESCO heritage site rich in cultural history and profound significance.

Might of Chemistry

Extremes of Perspective

Many professional photographers avoid shooting panoramas due to the astounding technical difficulties they pose. In this image however, the artist shows a clear understanding of the technical aspects involved in making such an awe-inspiring image.

Riddle

Ancient trees often have entriguing shapes and cavities that have the tendancy to tease our brain.

Here the artist presents us with a classic example. This artwork has the potential to spark interesting conversations and thought processes.

Motions of Time

Africa's iconic Boabab trees are reminders of the resilience of nature. Their average age is estimated to be around 2000 years.  But recently, scientists are puzzled by these trees now dying in droves and they don't know why.  Nine out of thirteen of Africas oldest and largest trees have already died in the past decade. It is now being speculated that rising temperatures due to climate change could be the cause.

African Sunset Sonata

 

The eve was upon the shore, as a brilliant sunset became a glorious spectacle, transforming the lethargic day into a delirious nocturne. The glittering lake adorned with African tree sculptures stood silently whilst enjoying the pensive sonata of the African evening sounds.

 

The artist has captured the melody in a myriad of black and white tones and shades,

Evanescent Afternoon

 

The sunlight was evanescent, painting the landscape in unimaginable shapes and tones, then fading just as quickly as it had appeared.

The artist has captured the interplay of light and shadows falling on the landscape to create an artwork that captivates our imagination and holds our attention in awe.

Majestic Battle

 

I followed the majestic flight of a hundred vultures revelling in the freedom of this place, home to the second largest vulture colony in the world, soaring through the skies to

roam at will.

 

The looming storm sent the the birds scurrying back to their nests, set high up on the rock faces. As I gazed down into their valley, the sun broke through to reveal the majestic landscape that these endangered creatures call home.

Serene Passage

 

In the morning after the rain, the landscape takes on a serene, lithographed look.

It's a lovely unspoilt place, clean, serene, winsome, and bathed in an almost Alice-in-Wonderland charm.

 

This meditative style is evident in the artist’s surreal, moody landscapes which he describes as balanced and serene.

Bewitched Earth

 

For many humans, bewitched by this remarkable place called Africa, the pull is just as strong. And yet one becomes as bewitched and utterly delighted as any first-timer.

 

The artist has a way of composing his work in such a way as to mesmerised his audience with the placement of strong elements and highlights in his work.

Chef-d'oeuvre by Nature

 

Sometimes nature carves out a masterpiece that resembles a delicate and polished orchestration, an aquarelle by a great landscape painter.

Mother nature's palette consists of a myriad of soft grey tones in the dreamy mist clouds , accentuated with deep blacks and bright contrasting highlights reflecting in the water below.

 

The geometry, balance and lighting of this landscape, speaks of the perfection of the universe and its Creator.

 

The artist has exceeded all expectations and has achieved a level of perfection rarely seen. This chef-d'oeuvre was created by nature and perfectly captured in camera by the artist.

Eternity of Solitude

 

For our now, as if living a frenzied life creates time and sempiternity, the divine now stays not moving, but standing still, and creates eternity.

 

The artist, by using elements of nature softly painted with the early morning sunlight, its shapes quietly reflecting in the calm water, invites the

viewer to take a deep breath and pause a while

Ephemeral Chaos

 

The time to build an ark is before the raging flood is upon us, not after we're waist-deep in the tides of chaos and despair.

 

The artist does not take credit for creating this thought provoking mood, but rather in recognising its unusual beauty and capturing

it in camera to share his experience of the moment with the world.
