Thanks to the National Arts Festival & Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) I’ve been awarded a Silver Arts Journalism Award in Photography as well as a special silver merit award for my contribution to theatre. Below are a few of the images from my submission.
From top to bottom, left to right:
Riaan Visman in Die Laaste Karretjiegraf by Athol Fugard and Bianca Le Grange in Blood Brothers by Willy Russell, both published in The Next 48 Hours.
Andrew Laubscher in The Rocky Horror Show by Richard O’Brien published in The Sunday Times.
Alex Middlebrook and Tshamano Sebe in Master Harold and the boys by Athol Fugard published on Broadwayworld.com
Mpume Mthombeni in Tin Bucket Drum by Neil Coppen published on Broadwayworld.com
While the newspapers are struggling to keep photographers employed and closing down their Arts pages, it is heartening to see this glimmer of support for Arts Journalists. The awards are based on arts journalism pieces published during 2013.
