Have you heard about the ‘The Bicycle Portraits project’?
“Myself, Stan Engelbrecht and a good friend and fellow bicycle enthusiast, Nic Grobler recently started a project investigating South African bicycle culture, and the lack of cyclist commuters out there on our roads. We are currently raising funds to turn this project into a self-published full-color hard-cover photographic book ( similar to a previous book I’ve done, African Salad - www.dayonepublications.com ). We are shooting the entire project from our own bicycles while traveling around the country – we are meeting everyday South Africans out there while they use their bicycles.”

In reading the accounts of the artists who accompanied Cook, Tillim was interested to note that their debates on-board ship around the subject of the representation of landscape are very similar to those we have today: how much do you ‘give’ a scene and how much do you let it speak for itself? In this regard, he explains his own difficulties in finding a way through this binary because of our strongly conditioned notions of the frame and the picturesque..” more info here.
