Photography, photography

A thought-provoking visit to the local photography festival, examining rural change and disruption in a globalising world and featuring the work of both South African and local photographers. I was particularly moved by the photographs of young people on the fringes of South African society, Between Dogs and Wolves by Jodi Bieber, and - closer to home - by the exhibition by college photography students.

It's inspired me to post some of my own recent shots taken around town. Nothing to do with globalisation. Just for the pleasure of it

You made me grin. The unconsidered shots, that we all see, but rarely look at.

I love the last, especially! But all of them.

How wonderful to have a Photography festival.

I have just had a look at Jodi Bieger's photographs, they are very good and thought provoking.

Thanks everyone.

Starnitesky: I agree. We are very fortunate to have this festival in such a relatively small town. Am making the most of it ...
