Jared M. Aufrichtig is originally from Californian but has spent the last six years exploring our country. These six years have been captured on celluloid and turned into a 720 page photographic book on South African alternative, youth and street culture. The hardbound book, ‘Expressions Book One South Africa’, launched yesterday and features photographs of some of South Africa’s foremost surfers, skaters and musicians including Shaun Tomson, Jordy Smith, Puddy Zwennis, Christi Wiehahn, Fokofpolisiekar, Taxi Violence, The Dirty Skirts, Tidal Waves, Sweat X and many others.
The book also features numerous contributions from artists who have augmented Aufrichtig’s celluloid images with their own graphic interpretations. A cross-section of South African designers, illustrators, graffiti, graphic and tattoo artists – including Kronk, Mak1one, Fong, Matt Edwards, Tyler B. Murphy, Bryan Little and TheoryOne – lend their significant creative abilities to the project.
A limited First Edition of 1 000 signed and individually numbered copies of ‘Expressions Book One South Africa’ will be available with two different cover art variations. The Deluxe Edition of the book, of which only 130 copies will be available, comes with a unique lithographic plate in one of the CMYK colours from which the book was printed. South African artist Tyler B. Murphy designed the cover.
The book is available from astore in Kloof St, Cape Town or directly from the author. His details –
