The participants of this group show met in the 1980’s and worked for various news media during the most turbulent years of the apartheid era. Since thosedays their career paths have diverged although their personal friendships have endured.
The elements: water, air, earth, fire and aether are commonalities in the experience of our humanity; influencing: cultural and spiritual geographies, social climate and natural ecologies. In their exploration of these powerful themes, a portrait of the times and environments in which we experience these forces is set to evolve.
