"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”

Chris Martin, 2010

Africa Nature Training - “The Cradle of Humankind” field trip

One of the great advantages of doing your FGASA training over 1 year is the depth to which students can study the course’s component parts, in particular those such as paleoanthropology.

Along side this year’s students from Africa Nature Training, I had the privilege of a day on the excavations of Dr Christine Steininger at Coopers Cave. Christine, who has painstakingly worked this cave and the surrounding area for many years, brings to life the way the veld looked to the naked eye millions of years ago, explaining how the process of calcification of hominid and animal remains takes place. To be “in the trenches” .. literally... and discovering fosilised remains for ourselves was an incredible experience; a sabre toothed tiger out in the veld, now that sounds like a ‘sighting” no one else had last weekend!!

Thanks Christine ... an incredible day!!!
