Meaning An interpretation of life on the streets of Cape Town, photographed through the windows of a car during the winter rains of 2008.
Originally from Zimbabwe, Dave Robertson is a self-taught visual artist based in Cape Town. He is well known for his series of expressionist photographs depicting township life in South Africa in the early 90's. These emotive scenes have been selectively hand-coloured, and offer an emotive peek into a land on the brink of huge social changes. Dave has also explored more abstract work both through painting, and photography in his graceful Kensho Light Series. These bright compositions of light and distant form are transformations of Dave's night-time photography, and each is imbued with a unique meditative quality.
