The “Good Hope” series began in September 2017 and is still ongoing.
The “Good Hope” series was birthed after a sequence of events that led me to sell all my belongings, pack my car, leave my home town of 48 years and drive 14 hours across the country to Cape Town, my new home. Prior to this decision I had to learn how to let go of the misguided need to control, and learn to trust the flow.
Having settled in I found life directing me to take a year course in photography and graphic design. During that year I walked the Camino de Santiago, as part of my spiritual quest, from Ponferada to Santiago, a total of 200km. The following year, as I continued flowing, I attended a fine art photography course and joined 2 photographers, who I met at the course, in the Tankwa Karoo Desert for 10 days to photograph artists in residency.
We are now in the midst of a pandemic and Good Hope still continues. This is not the time to give up, but rather a time to reach deep within and find our inner strength, which we will need to nurture our good hope for this hour and the future.
