About this Item
signed, dated 2012 and numbered 2/12
South African photographer Gary van Wyk’s career began with an internship at Independent Newspapers in 2003; a position that soon turned full-time. He has since worked both independently and at other media outlets, which has afforded him the opportunity to travel widely and photograph many notable people – including Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Opera Winfrey. He was the principal photographer for the third season of 21 Icons, a project inspired by Mandela that photographs remarkable individuals who have positively impacted the world around them. Van Wyk’s works are intimate portraits of places and people – often his own family – in both colour and black and white photography.
