In November 2017 I shot the cover image for Antoinette Pienaar’s second book, Die lang man sonder skaduwee, for Penguin Random House Publishers. They also licensed some of the existing work I had shot for her website in 2016 to use in the book.
Visiting Theefontein is a profound experience, and I relished the opportunity to go back for this shoot. The weather was absolutely dreadful on the morning of the shoot, and after a cold night with an icy gale, we were extremely grateful to find the spot I scouted for the shoot was sheltered from the wind, and as a bonus, the haze created by the bad weather made for some lovely atmospheric images.
Do make sure to visit Antoinette and Oom Johannes’ website, Kruie Kraai Koning.
