“The Photographer”

My weapon of choice is not The Spear, but my camera.

The Photographer

I do not wish to rule South Africa, just photograph it.
I do not wish to have a party, but I’ll take photos at yours if there is a cake with candles.
I do not want the country to listen to what I say… I just want them to see the country through my images.
If I break the rules it will only be the rules of thirds, of composition, of balancing elements, of focus, of leading lines, of symmetry and patterns, of viewpoint and of framing.
I don’t want to have to explain myself…I just want my photos to tell the story.
I am The Photographer
