Show & Tell: Photography Edition | An Evening of Creative Talks

Show & Tell: Photography Edition


On Wednesday 11 March we’re hosting another Show & Tell in Cape Town. This edition of creative talks will run alongside the GRID Cape Town Biennial, a photography festival in and around town that’s exhibiting work by photographers from 20 different countries. In celebration of the art of image-making, we’ve invited some exciting local photographers to share the creative process behind their work.


Here’s more about the speakers. Remember to sign up to the guest list below.


Marguerite Oelofse | Painterly Fashion Photography


Marguerite OelofseMarguerite Oelofse

Marguerite Oelofse


Marguerite Oelofse‘s photographs are dramatic and bold. Unlike the current fad of washed out whimsical images, hers are colour-saturated and fierce. Textured backgrounds and bolts of colour give her photographs a painterly quality. Marguerite has a special place in her heart for makeup and hair artists, which is apparent in her work. Together, they concoct elaborate characters, which Marguerite then ‘directs’ through the different plot points of the fashion story, bringing to life the vision. She will be sharing more about this process at Show & Tell.

Main Road Chronicles


Main Road Chronicles is an ongoing street photography project by photographers Guy Neveling and Paul Cocks. Sometimes walking together but mostly hitting the road on their own, they shoot with Main Road, Cape Town as their subject, give or take a few roads running parallel. The unique stretch of road starts in the city winding around the peninsula, and going through a multitude of diverse suburbs, open land and coastal road. There is no brief but to come back with interesting photos after an interesting day. They will be sharing more about this project at Show & Tell.

Photographer and recent Michaelis graduate Thandiwe Msebenzi’s compelling photographic series OoBhuti abatsha grapples with the evolution and reappropriation of culture and tradition in a post-colonial society. Her portraits address the Xhosa rite-of-passage ritual of circumcision and the clothing that marks the transformation from boy to man in the eyes of the community. At Show & Tell she will be sharing more about this daring project.
