BEHIND THE SCENES: Fokofpolisiekar - Droom Hoog

BEHIND THE SCENES: Fokofpolisiekar - Droom Hoog

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.

LINKI ABRIE - Who am I?

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.

MARC SCHOFIELD - Who am I?

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 move to Fujifilm wasn’t done on a whim and a fancy. I’ve been looking at the system for some time and actually shot a wedding with a borrowed X-T1. Unfortunately, at that stage it had too many limitations when compared to the setup I owned. Things like battery life and image quality weren’t up to scratch and a move seemed unlikely…

ANESH MAGAN - Who am I?

When photographing my cousin’s baby shower, she asked me if I had taken the photo. I said yes and she said that was so fast. I asked her what she meant. She replied that she did not hear the click. (remember that i am deaf) I realised i had set the camera to the ES mode (electronic shutter) so the shutter is silent. I changed it back to the MS mode (Mechanical shutter)…

CHRIS PUREN - Who am I?

People call me Krispy. (Chris P)uren

It started many years ago. My friend and I went out for drinks when her mom called and asked her where she was. She said she was out having drinks with “Chris”. Her mom asked which Chris (In the town I grew up there were a lot of us) and she said “Chris Puren”. All her mom heard was Chrispy. The name stuck haha!

JOHN VAN DEVENTER: Who am I?

JOHN VAN DEVENTER: Who am I?

My journey into photography started when I left school to go study Graphic Design. I instantly fell in love with the art. In those days I was shooting on a Minolta Dynax on black and white film and then developing the images myself in the darkroom… It’s a method that teaches you a lot about getting composition and lighting right before you press the shutter….
