Beware! This book is designed to seriously inspire your imagination – and it will do exactly that, if you are willing to take a chance and look at the images. Green leaves that appear to be purple – an orchid with black petals – chopped wood that radiates more than the living trees nearby – all of these images, and more are just waiting for you.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1968, and spent my childhood residing in both South Africa and Australia. This diverse upbringing has resulted in my unusual and imaginative art. I have had a passion for photography ever since I received my first camera, a Kodak Box Brownie, for my 6th Birthday. Since then, I’ve been snapping away, freezing moments in time. Over time, my photography turned to art, and I found I was not content to simply capture images – I took up the challenge of discovering the extraordinary in normal, everyday life. My passion is to inspire the imagination. I do this by capturing images photographically, and then digitally editing the original image to achieve something distinctive and extraordinary. I hope that you get as much enjoyment out of my books as I have had in creating them. Regards, Pieter
