“I use my photography as a vehicle to travel, discover, investigate, learn and experience. I record people and places, situations and small happenings along the way. Experience has taught me to seize on the situation. I was driving along Nieuwoudtville searching for something odd and strange when I saw a gardener weeding in front of an old house and noticed his interesting hands. I could see his whole life in the features of his hands. The gardener looked down at his hands and hid them behind his back. He placed his hands on the gate and laughed again. That all, nothing more, nothing less – one short meeting in Nieuwoudtville.”
