Create For Others What You Would Have Created For You
The Agog Session
A series of images captured during a walk through the Johannesburg inner city. The images were taken for an analogue project I worked on, but I loved them so much I had to put them up here.
In The City
Coffee and live music. Two Johannesburg staples came together for the February edition of the monthly Starbucks Sessions. The highlights of the day were up and coming singer Just Robyn followed by the South Africa icon HHP.
I have to confess that I am a sucker for lists of "Top 10 reasons to do X" or "50 ways to get better at Y" variety. One such list gave me two pieces of advice which I've only ever gone against to capture these three images. "Never bring your camera to a party" and "Drinking and photography do not go well together", but on this occasion I'm glad I broke both rules.
I love shooting live concerts. There's something about capturing in an image the energy you experience from a stage and the crowd around it.
Like any born and bred Capetownian, I arrived in Johannesburg expecting to find a literal concrete Jungle, devoid of mountains and therefore beauty. And like countless Capetownians before me, I've been pleasantly surprised.
