Most of my landscapes are collected on short road trips or exploratory outings, sometimes to places not easily accessible to others.
PHOTOGRAPHY: LOUIS VORSTER
Working in color and B & W photographs, and covering diverse subjects that include people, still lives and landscapes, may seem inconsistent to some, but to me it’s all the ingredients I need to complete my own narrative.Natural impulses to document change and adjustment in my surroundings aside, I also take special note of the exchange between man and nature, often subtle and mundane, but also sometimes with much fervor and clarity.
Most of my landscapes are collected on short road trips or exploratory outings, sometimes to places not easily accessible to others. Often I go out on somber or atmospheric days because I’m not only intrigued by our connections and relationships with the environment, I also want my photographs to allude to intangible human elements like isolation, melancholy, loneliness and introspection.Unlike some of my work that often feature people, my relationships with them, and their interaction with each other, I also find myself drawn to the landscape, and our association and dialogue with the environment.
