Exhibition highlights beauty of water

Simon Sephtons latest exhibition takes place next month.

Photographer Simon Sephton will present 35 new pictures in his exhibition, Water Light 2017, at The Forge, 12 Windsor Road, Kalk Bay, from Wednesday December 6 to Thursday December 21.

Simon sets out to raise awareness of the beauty of water and also to explore the interplay of life, light and water rather than the horrors of drought.

His photographs capture the ever-changing, swirling light patterns; the reflections and mirrors created by the water’s skin; the colours of light – from ochre and amber to cerulean and a violet sky. His works are finished with printing on German etching paper using archival inks.

“Now more than ever we need to be conscious of the beauty and preciousness of water. I have had to search further and wider to source elements to photograph,” says Simon.

“The exhibition will be opened on Wednesday December 6, at 6pm, by photographer and journalist Nicky Newman and water expert and geologist Rowena Hay, founder of Umvoto Africa.

The exhibition will be open daily from 9.30am to 5pm, including weekends. Entry to the exhibition is free. Visit www.simonsephton.com for more information.
