Cape Town: Up Close & Personal
After several years of absence photographing celebrities and their hounds in the fashion centres of the world, young photographer, Mia Feinstein, returns to South Africa to rediscover the place of her birth – Cape Town.
Through the lens of this talented artist, the city is distilled into a photographic masterpiece: hidden angles are uncovered, often-missed features are laid bare and old favourites are presented in a new light. Be it a photograph of a pedestrian passing poignant graffiti, stately doorways and forgotten façades parading in side streets, or the inescapable natural splendour of this coastal city, her images reveal a Cape Town few have seen and even fewer have stopped to discover.
From a selection of glorious bird’s-eye views, her camera descends to street level where she captures the vitality of the city’s street life. It is here, too, that her viewfinder seeks out the people of Cape Town in all their unconscious charm. Cape Town Up Close & Personal is an enthralling tribute to a city that ranks among the best in the world.
