P = for Print

I came back from a meeting in town with the Museum Gallery guy, Dylan, just now and he showed me the prints for the exhibition. They are beautiful! Orms really did a stunning job and they were *fast* as well.  All prints are all C-grade prints which means they are printed on photographic paper using a chemical process. They are also guaranteed to not fade in color for the next 85 years. Got a sneak preview of the whole set as well and it’s going to be an awesome exhibition. It is such a diverse body of work ranging from landscape to portrait to super imposed collages.

The photo is of Leon Visser (of Hot Water fame) or ‘the one that didn’t quite make the selection’. It is a personal favorite and was shot on a beach in The Netherlands in 2008. I love the idea of a South Africa and Afrikaans man at that, sitting on the beach in Holland facing the landscape with the sea behind him. Like he’s come full circle. Even if it is a pity that the photo didn’t make it into the exhibition, I do like the fact that the photos that will be shown were taken during my stay recent here in SA.
