This post is a personal one. I’m writing this post in honour of my dad.
Today would have been his 60th birthday.
My dad passed away in 2008 from a heart attack. It was right after I finished my studies in BCom Marketing and the day after I started working as a journalist at Middelburg’s community newspaper. So, he never knew that I ended up becoming a photographer. And that I live 1600km from my family in Cape Town. Or that I’ve actually discovered what I want to be. And that I’m happy.
My pa het my en my sussie geleer dat as jy dit kan droom, kan jy dit doen. En hy is die inspirasie agter my logo omdat hy altyd vir my gesê het “Sien jou by die boom” wanneer ons gegroet het.
So, I’ve selected all of my favourite images from the past two years and I would like to say like they say in the beginning of good books: “This one’s for you, dad.”
Geluk met Pa se verjaarsdag xxx
