South African Man - Leonard Neumann




PLEASE ENLARGE

THIS PORTRAIT WAS SHOT NEAR ADDO IN SOUTH SOUTH AFRICA. THE GENTLEMAN WAS PROBABLY A FRUIT PICKER ON ONE OF THE SURROUNDING FARMS IN THE EASTEN CAPE. I THOUGHT THAT HE HAD A SERENE LOOK ABOUT HIM AND ASKED IF I COULD TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH, UNLIKE MOST PEOPLE IN AFRICA HE DID NOT POSE BUT LOOKED RIGHT INTO THE LENS.
