About "Roman and the Chickens "

I was working on a project about migration in the Swiss Alps, and met some of the local people. Roman is a farmer who lives up in the alps in the summer months with his wife Liesbet. Together they tend after the cows and chickens and live a very simple traditional life. This day they invited me in to join them for a lovely lunch and dessert of blueberries freshly foraged from the mountain. I was really grateful when I got the opportunity to take this picture, nothing posed, exactly as it was.

About Lavonne

Lavonne Bosman

The kind of photographic art style I work in, is not of the instant variety that our culture is currently satiating itself with, but rather relevant in an archival, historical space of time, especially keeping in mind the fact of rapid development in our urban and rural spaces. It requires natural light and natural moments to create and in that way is something that is completely unique.

I've been developing my style of photographic art for many years and can finally say that I've come to a place where I know what I want my art to look like. My wish is for my art to be taken as seriously as other mediums of art. I want to see it printed large scale and hanging on walls in houses and hotels or other buildings for years to come.

I am a natural light photographer with a great love for Africa and it's people. Exploring new places and cultures is my desire and I love travelling from the Western Cape to other parts of our diverse country, such as the Eastern Cape, Transkei, where I lived for 2 and a half years (in a caravan!), teaching basic literacy and documenting the amaXhosa people in their rural homelands and I try to still visit for a couple of weeks every year.

People are my passion and I love capturing natural moments in natural light, reflecting a person's true character through more artistic portraits. I've been taking photographs for more than 10 years, starting out with black & white film photography and darkroom developing and I find my eye still inclined to that look.

I love capturing moments as I see it, keeping it real without interfering too much. When I take a photo I often consider what the meaning of it might be for future generations. I love my 50mm. Light and emotion is my inspiration.

Photography is my art and I believe that true art stands through time. Art takes patience to create and it cannot be forced. Sometimes the elements are just not right and it can be challenging. But when the time is right and it is God's will He will bless you with something so beautiful that it can purely be a gift. And that makes everything worth it.
