About "Empire Cafe Red"

The Empire Cafe in Muizenberg is situated in a beautiful old building from Muizenberg's hey-day back in the early 20th century. The building has been restored to its former glory, and its wonderful atmosphere seeps into "coffee at the Empire".

Fortunately, my camera had joined me for coffee with a friend on this particular day. The red on the stairs and the red on the open balcony caught my attention, and I was lucky, and quick enough to catch the image.

Monochroming the image, with the exception of the red garments, helps the image to become something more than just someone climbing the stairs to meet a friend.

About Robin

Robin Bownes

Photography has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My father has a photograph of me, at age 3, taking a photograph of him. In high school I discovered that photography and a camera confidently wielded, provided access to people & places that might otherwise have been out of reach.

However, what fascinated me from the very beginning, was that I could capture moments in time, manipulate them, and turn them into art. Digital photography and editing has of course opened previously unimagined possibilities in this regard. The digital age has forever changed what it means to be a photographer. Photography now includes not only 'pure' photographic images, straight from the camera, but also digital imaging art, using photographs as a starting point and framework for new artistic, photographic possibilities.

I believe that photography is art if it is treated as such. I believe that art requires constant experimentation, learning and pushing of boundaries. I believe that creativity and its appreciation is a basic function of humanity. I don't believe in limiting myself to any one style or aspect of my art.
