Award winning wildlife photographer and Fujifilm X-Photographer, Peter Delaney took the new Fujinon XF200mmF2 on safari. It proved to be an instant classic.
The idea of doing a photo-based video came from myself and Liam Lynch collaborating on a photo exhibition dealing with the 3month period around Fokofpolisiekar's recording of ‘Droom Hoog’. The band released our first full-length album in 10 years, titled Selfmedikasie, last year so the last thing fans would’ve expected was another short release so quickly afterwards. The album was written and recorded in 3 weeks as everyone involved in this band have various other musical projects and commitments.
I’ve always been drawn to stories. Alice in wonderland has always been a favourite of mine. I used to curl with the book under the covers for many a night as a little girl. In 2002 I received my first camera as a gift and was drawn to the idea that I could continue creating and capturing visual stories through the looking glass of my camera.
I got my First camera at age 6, yes, i really screwed up a lot of film back then. but slowly started to figure things out. Im a self taught Photographer and learned a lot of lessons the hard way and had to fight through the frustrations of "not getting what I want" in the shots. It's a long and hard when you only have 24 or 36 frames to work with every 2 months.
My story with photography is one that is a bit odd in the sense that I never thought I would be a photographer when I was younger. One thing that was certain from an early age was that I always enjoyed creating and it is probably the main reason I did so well in my art classes and not really well in any other subjects…
