I have promised myself that one day I will own a print by Cape Town photographer Daniel Naudé. His work manages to balance great technical ability with fascinating and aesthetically pleasing subject matter. I also like how he captures the South African landscape and its various wildlife.
I know I’ve posted about him before, but, at the end of this month he will open his second exhibition titled ‘Animal Farm‘ at Michael Stevenson. It looks to be as beautiful as the last. Here is an excerpt from the website:
“This series led Naudé to an exploration of stories in South African history that involved domesticated animals, and at one point he retraced the route of artist-explorer Samuel Daniell, who in 1800 set out on a journey from Cape Town to Leetakoe (today Ditakong in the Northwest Province) to document the landscape, people and animals. Conversations with people during his many road trips brought up further stories and information about how animals can represent and be symbolic of a culture.”
