Leon Pelser. Story of my life
Photo Description: Leon is a medical doctor in Kriel, Mpumalanga. "Story of my Life" is an intelligent storytelling portrait, of one of his patients, who suffered from brain cancer. Leon's portrait depicts the heart-breaking reality of a patient who lost all her hair due to the dreaded chemotherapy. At the same time, his patient's witty gesture and facial expression, shows courage and hope. Sadly, since the taking of this portrait, she has passed away.
Nadia de Lange. A man and his dog
Photo Description: In Nadia's own words... "Another attempt at something more creative. I wanted to create a painting, with the emphasis on how small my husband and especially my dog are in comparison to the massive trees around them. I wanted the viewer to really move their eyes up and down the photo, finally resting on the man and his dog"
