CT: Obie Oberholzer solo exhibition
Legendary South African photographer Obie Oberholzer‘s solo exhibition ‘Diesel and Dust’ opens at the Erdmann Contemporary gallery in Cape Town on Wednesday the 3rd of June. Contact the gallery to join the special walk-about with Oberholzer on Thursday 4 June @ 11:00. Say no more – just go go go.
Oberholzer is an avid storyteller, fond of dispensing profound statements and dazzling images of his colourful journeys all across Africa. He is the Wyatt Earp of the photographic world, always traveling alone, always taking with him a stirring collection of vibrant memories of the unknown, remote places that we usually don’t ever get to see.
His latest solo exhibition, Diesel & Dust, curated by Heidi Erdmann and Karen Grunwald, is a long awaited and also signals the end of analogue. After several decades of hand-printing all his photographs, Oberholzer has finally dismantled his darkroom at the beginning of 2009.
Oberholzer taught photography at Rhodes University, Grahamstown until he retired in 2002.
He now works full time on his photography.
