New from Legendary South African Photographer, Obie Oberholzer: Diesel & Dust

Diesel & Dust“Few SA artists can productively be called raconteurs, as in a skilful teller of anecdotes. Most are simply too glum – solemn, too – when spinning yarns around their work. If only more artists, in particular photographers, could be like Obie Oberholzer.” – Sean O’Toole, Financial Mail

Visually stimulating images of Africa offer a multifaceted view of the continent in Diesel & Dust, a recollection that is at once a history, a meditation, a travel memoir, and a tribute.

“Diesel and Dust is a philosophy. The smell of diesel and dust early in the morning give me a feeling that I’m far away, and this book is about that – interesting people and places; about wonderings and passing’s through.”
– Obie Oberholzer
