Adriaan van Heerden
Adriaan van Heerden is an award-winning international photographer, passionate about wildlife, travel and landscapes. In his work he attempts to convey something of the thrill of encountering nature in all its wild beauty or experiencing a foreign culture first-hand. He finds nothing more exciting…Show more than getting up at the crack of dawn for an early morning game drive in an African nature reserve, soaking up the atmosphere of a misty canal in Venice, or being in the right place when the sun rises over the Santa Fe Mountains in New Mexico. Depending on the image he uses colour or monochrome processing to emphasise the poetic quality of the picture, always aware that it is the privilege of the artist to create beauty in a fragile world, and that photography has a role to play in preserving and conserving that beauty.Show less
"Adriaan’s photography is far more than a visual experience. When looking at his African photographs in particular I am transported; I can’t help but feel the oppressive heat, my throat becomes dry from the dust filled air, and the power and energy of Africa’s wildlife is inescapable. As with the best fine art, Adriaan’s imagery takes one on an emotional, as well as visual journey. "
