The New B&W Photography: Torne Leigh Velk

Torne Velk


The New B&W Photography, an exhibition we’re hosting together with This Is Film and Orms, opens this Thursday. The show will feature ten up and coming photographers, one of which is Torne Velk.


Torne Leigh Velk is a young fashion photographer starting out in Cape Town. She began shooting at the age of 15 for a school project using her older brother’s Nikon D80, and has never looked back. With a growing passion and determination, Torne loves that she learns something new about photography every day, and loves working with new people in the industry. Her hopes are to shoot internationally and to see what’s out there, beyond her home country. She says, “For me, photography is about the bond you have with the subject so making sure the model is comfortable with you. The best part of the shoot process for me is choosing the best images and post production.”
