Haiku My Heart: Feelings and Consolation
Offering of Love
In Quiet and Equal Gaze
A Note from the Photographer:
Photography is an elegiac art, a twilight art. Most subjects photographed are, just by virtue of being photographed, touched with pathos. All photographs are 'memento mori'. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt.
...Susan Sontag: American author, literary theorist, and political activist. 1933 – 2004
~I wish to dedicate this photograph of Lorraine Wildeman to Phyllis Clarke for her constant assistance, encouragement and vision. Thanks Phyllis.
“You bring poetry to poverty and pain, and you bring us closer to South Africa through just a few people…” excerpt from a quoted response to these images by Phyllis Clarke on 1x.com.
Andre du Plessis hails originally from South Africa and now resides in London where he practices as a physician when he is not capturing these phenomenal images.
