The Refugees

The Night Of 1000 Drawings time is upon us again and this year I wanted to do something different to last year as my contribution. I got to shoot a series of four studio portraits of a few of the refugees that stay at Paballo and help out with food and medication drop-offs for the inner city homeless. I wanted the portraits to be as simple and 'stripped-down' so to speak as possible. The four portraits will be on sale tonight to raise funds for Paballo and each guy I shot also got an edition. In order as they appear are; Bizwell Chembe (born 28 November 1961), Siphelele Manqindi (born 15 February 1983), Welcome Dlamini (born 15 September 1988) and Mduduzi Sibanda (born 18 April 1983)

Gregory Crewdson

I stumbled across a book by this guy when I was in Munich. There were a few other books I had my eye on in the store, but when I saw this guy's stuff, everything else went out the window and he became my new favourite. His use of cinematographic lighting and sets is remarkable. He's a genius! I also love his use of visual narrative and his scenes are almost like entire plots unfolding. He plays on paranormal scenes in surreal American environments. Inspired by the likes of William Eggleston, Walker Evans and Jeff Wall... I can't find an official site but here are a couple links and here, and if you can, get his book 'Gregory Crewdson 1985-2005'... It's amazing!
