The 'Light Play' Series
About The Series:
The newest ten-part series titled 'Light Play' explores the Sossusvlei sand dunes from the sky.
It's here in the remote Namibian Desert where I wanted to push the boundaries and explore new perspectives by which to photograph these wondrous
mountains of sand. So rather than simply photographing the big picture, my goal was to try an take a closer look at some of the intricacies which make up Sossusvlei sand dunes. Before getting airborne, I already had an idea in my head for how I wanted this Sossusvlei fine art series to look. I did as much research as I possibly could regarding the time of day in which to fly but you can never be one hundred per cent sure when you're based in another country. All I could do was hope that the time I selected was going to pay dividends.. photographically speaking that is.
As we drew closer to the Sossusvlei sand dunes, I knew I had hit the nail on the head. It was here, high above this Namibian desert where I observed the subtle curves and lines that the ever-present wind had created. Shifting and shaping the Sossusvlei sand dunes into unique and interesting formations which pleased the eye. As I watched the tonal range of the dunes come to life I new this Sossusvlei fine art series was going to be some of my best work yet. Through sunken troughs and over high ridges the light cascaded, creating contrasting lines only visible during this particular time of day. It was here where I observed the peaks on one side of the sand dunes collecting the last of the days light, while the opposite side descended into darkness.
It has taken me some time, years, in fact, to carefully select each image for the Sossusvlei photography series - Light Play. Only now have I got this finely curated collection of images to a point where I feel it's complete. This is because I prefer to take my time, carefully inspecting every minuscule detail so that when I release a body of work, I know it's going to stand the test of time!
