I love taking pictures of people and capture their essence and nature. Photography is the art of observation, it is an exercise between light, composition and emotion, it's a way of listening with your eyes and see what the person in front of your camera wants to say. Today I am publishing again A Boy in Africa and I invited Brett Rogers. I met him in an event at the beginning of this year and I really liked his style, I think is cool and very authentic. Brett is the creator of Half Wolf and he has a radio show called The Unveiling on Luckie Entertainment. He was also awarded last year as one of the best dressed men of South Africa by GQ Magazine.
How do u define your style?
I'd define my style as a little challenging, a little challenged, questioning and unrestrained so long as its predominantly black or white.
Where do u normally shop for clothes?
I shop everywhere, if I had to choose a retailer in particular I'd choose Zara. Otherwise I shop at Cotton On, TopMan, China Mall, Pick n Pay, the side of the road, Mr Price ... anywhere that I spot an Item that I think will work for me.
Which color do u like to wear the most?
Any South African designer or clothing label that u like and why?
Yes, my favourites (Of Many) are: Kim Gush, Eleclass (def do some research on these guys) HalfWolf (obviously)
Kim has her fingertips so firmly on the pulse of the avante garde man that its wonderful to see, she is tapped into the same inspiration as Gareth Pugh and Rick Owens. She sticks to black/white and her fabric is always well thought out and intelligent. She needs to be known overseas as SA cant handle her awesome.
Eleclass has a similar avant garde nature, but with more colour, more structure and a touch more fun. These two boys are so talented, every time I see them floating around town I cant believe what they can pull off.
Halfwolf = best t shirts in SA … easy
What´s your key piece in your wardrobe?
I have no key item, there will be a key item per outfit. I dont have an all round basic. Though my Just Junkie Jeans are pretty close to being my most worn item.
A few days ago I attended the Iphoneography exhibition that was held in Johannesburg as one of my pictures was nominated to get an award. Iphoneography is an annual photography competition created by Apple that awards the best pictures taken with Iphones across the world.
They had different categories including: abstract, portrait, selfie, still life and scenery. I entered one picture per category and received a nomination in the selfie category.
Hace unos días asistí a la exhibición de Iphoneography que se realizó en Johannesburgo debido a que una de mis fotos estaba nominada para ganar uno de los premios. Iphoneography es un concurso anual creado por Apple que premia las mejores fotos tomadas con los teléfonos alrededor del mundo.
Este concurso tuvo diferentes categorías: abstracto, retrato, selfie, vida y escenarios. Yo mandé una foto por cada categoría y recibí la nominación en a categoría Selfie.
This is the picture that was nominated. I was so happy that this special moment with my baby boy that was captured by my Iphone could be in the exhibition along with the pictures of other very talented South Africans who also participated in this event. Its amazing how an iphone can take such good pictures that look so profesisonal and how people are so creative and artistic with this incredible device!
At the end, I didn’t win the award but just getting the nomination made me feel like a winner! The standard of the pictures entered into the exhibition was very high and I felt honored to have been selected to participate in this event. *** Esta es la foto que fué nominada. Para mi fue muy especial que este momento tan lindo con mi bebé y el cual fué capturado por mi Iphone, fuera parte de esta exhibición junto con las fotos de otros talentosos sudáfricanos. Es increíble como un Iphone puede tomar fotos de tan buena calidad las cuales se ven tan profesionales y como la gente puede ser tan creativa con este aparato. Al final yo no gané el premio pero con sólo tener la nominación me sentí ganadora! El nivel de las fotos de este evento fué muy alto y me sentí honrada de formar parte de esta exhibición.
This was one of my favorite pictures/Esta fué una de mis fotos favoritas
I also felt so happy to be there with my hubby and closest friends who came to the event to show support. It was a truly wonderful evening!
Me sentí feliz de estar allí con mi esposito y mis amigos más cercanos quiénes vinieron al evento a apoyarme. Fué una noche maravillosa.
