Faces of the Cape

Every face tells a story, and as someone who really enjoys street photography, I’ve spent many an hour capturing the faces of the world as they pass me by, either while I sit enjoying a cup of coffee Parisian style on Greenmarket Square in the Cape Town CBD, or walking around a Saturday morning market, or simply parking off on a bench in The Company’s Garden. I constantly return to this page to add new images, so if you’ve enjoyed them, be sure to check regularly for new content.

These are a few of the faces I’ve captured from the sidewalk outside Cafe Sante on Greenmarket Square – one of my favourite places. This is where I speak to Cafe Sante’s owner, Elias or exchange thoughts with his staff as I enjoy a coffee or a draught, and capture the street scenes that pass by.

The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock is another place where I enjoy capturing images, from the casual interaction of the visitors to the eager faces of the stall owners. It’s a microcosm of the people of Cape Town who I love to observe and capture for all those who appreciate the magic to be found in the eye of a lens.

And then, there is The Company’s Garden – a fascinating blend of locals and travellers from abroad. Children play, while tourists stroll peacefully or office workers rush down Government Avenue, all watched over by someone resting on a park bench, with their worldly belongings close by.
