Afrikaburn 2009 / by Dirk Pieters

This was my first daylight studio since the "Portraits in a Tent" exhibition in 1985. I had dreamed so often of doing it again but over the years, work and family always became the priority. I had also to an extent given up photography as an art, deeming it to be not for me. This project heralded the start of the "Afrikaburn" years and a new period of creativity and passion for photography.
