Light, people and an appetite for all things photographic-Lindsey Appolis

 What have you been up to since we last featured you?

Let’s just say it’s been an interesting 6 months since we last spoke.

My work has been featured in Four Magazine which is an American international art magazine which only does four publications a year. I made the spring edition.

I collaborated with Jennifer Hitzsges to do test work for a Timberland concept – capturing the iconic Timberland boot on the streets of Cape Town.

During April – May ,I travelled to Tanzania to document the humanitarian work being done by an American organisation ACICS in the schooling and hospital environment. What an emotionally amazing and eye opening experience and I truly understand the expression “This is Africa”. My pics tell the story that really is impossible to put into words.

Tell us about your new project?

Exhibition obviously – I’m busy putting together my African work with another concept but its early days and don’t want to divulge to much just yet. So watch this space because I’m quite excited about the the story and how it could unfold. 

What was the inspiration behind your new work?

Light, people and an insatiable appetite for all things photographic – just last week I had to go back to the Annie Leibovitz documentary because her thinking resonates so much with mine.

If I had to pinpoint one thing I think it would have to be the people aspect of what I did, we all live very complex and interesting lives and being able to show the joys, pains and the full ranges of emotions of people I interact with compelled me to do this trip.

Whats are your creative plans for 2014?

Some work involving Aid Organisations, another international trip and an exhibition towards the end of the year. And just for fun I’ll be shooting some fashion work where I will be excercising some of the sometimes wacky ideas that roll around in my head.
