We’d like to invite you to join us for a digital walk through of the images created by both 6 Month Part-Time Technical Photography and Intro To Photography students.
While we cannot come together in celebration of the talented photographers and creatives currently attending the Orms Cape Town School of Photography we can still celebrate their talents through a virtual exhibition.
6-Month Part-Time Technical Photography
The 6-Month Part-Time Technical Photography students have been focusing on developing their attention to light, technical camera work, post-production, and visual storytelling. Take a look at what they’ve been able to achieve under the expert guidance of their dedicated lecturers.
This series forms part of a continuous investigation into another world of performed identities and perceived realities.

This small series of photographs looks at the similarities between the female body and Mother Nature in her simplest form. Unveiling these similarities draws the viewer closer into acknowledging the details and textures which may be overlooked at a first glance. Human veins resemble those on a crisp autumn leaf, the spine is put in relation to the stem of a plant and its leaves, and skin is compared to the texture of a native South African tree. The aim of this intimate series is to create unity between the female body and nature in order to highlight the affinity between the two.
