Riaan Fourie’s collection of panoramic photographs captures the delicate balance between travel and stasis – significant moments paused, captured, then allowed to slide past like scenes glimpsed through a car window. Sweeping stillness, desolation, radiant skies that hum with energy, haunting natural landscapes and breath-taking urban nights – these are SoulScapes.
His exhibition challenges viewers to step beyond aesthetics and acknowledge the invisible communities – those men, women and children beyond the frames who are as much a part of the captured landscape as the wind and the grass.
This exhibition calls for social responsibility in art – the potential of photography not only to take from a landscape, but also to give back to it. Not just in aesthetic value, but by the actual power of the contributions.
