About the Hand-painted photographs series


Expressionist images of marginalized lifestyles in

Southern Africa, originating as black & white

photographs to which I added colour.

An approach that had its roots in the pre-democratic

period of South African history and reflects my belief

that the addition of vibrant colour offered an antidote

to what was often a dark and volatile period.

 

Archival pigment ink on cotton rag paper.
