“Photography broadens one’s view of the world. As a photojournalist you are placed in unfamiliar situations and recording such events gives you a better understanding of other people, cultures and events. Seeing the beauty and the ugliness of the world makes you appreciate your own life and makes you more tolerant of other peoples’ views and lives. We are all connected by a common thread but also individual. Visual story telling is a very important tool to record history as pictures evoke emotion and are remembered long after the story is forgotten. ”
I am currently a freelance photographer. I focus on photojournalism and story-telling in different environments (media, corporate, personal and social). I have more than 13 years photojournalism experience which included a position of Picture Editor at Beeld newspaper. I am a part-time lecturer at Market Photo Workshop.
