Lesotho Highlands Collection

 

 

 

 

An exciting photographic expedition to the Lesotho Highlands has yielded some extraordinary African landscape artworks.

 

We were blessed with the most dramatic skies due to extreme cold weather.

 

The combination of remarkable majestic mountain scenes and mind-blowing inclement weather has resulted in collection of astounding authentic black and white photographs.

 

All works in the collection have been captured on my medium format, high resolution, Hasselblad camera, and the detail and tonality in the final photographs are simply intoxicating.

Ancient Fortress

Ancient Fortress

 

The artist imagines the mountain to be that which resembles a fortress with blocks of stone evenly cut and dressed, and white lines to guide invited guests into the valley below on moonless nights. For thousands of years, this fortress had guarded the natural pathway leading to the playground of the mountain kingdom monarchs

Dictator of Harmony 

Dictator of Harmony

Moments of ebullience

Moments of ebullience

 

Like a theatrical stage well lighted, the artist waits for the perfect moment to capture the soft rays of sunlight that emulate the glare of the brasier in the forge and the furnace to highlight the craggy features in the distant hills.

 

Against this backdrop, ancient molten lava has sculptured a complex array of rock pools on the floor that resemble an orchestra pit filled to the brim with musicians ready to start the sonata.

Gifts of Change

Gifts of Change

 

 

The underlying design of nature is a spiralling vortex, in which undulating waters magically metamorphose into watered silk, velvet into vaporous cloud and firmament. And once more, dry streams burst into life. The artist is confronted with the ‘circle of life’ and uses his lens to tell the story.

Distorted Throne

Distorted Throne

 

The tragedy of power and ambition beautifully captured in this image is strangely captivating. The artist, seeing these shapes emerging from the fog, imagined this to be a scene from the  William Shakespeare's tragedy, Macbeth. Standing before the trio of witches, Macbeth , consumed with ambition of becoming the King of Scotland, is greeted with the words "Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog and filthy air"  

With those words playing in his head and standing in the pouring rain, the artist captures the drama of the play perfectly.

Dimension

Dimension

 

 

There is a primary difference between the material world and the spiritual dimension. 

On the other hand, anteriority and posteriority exist in dimension as well as in numbers.

 

The artist, when looking through the lens, sees a dimension that is beyond our comprehension,

since the Fourth dimension is involved. The dimension of AWE!
