A Glimpse at the Artist’s Inner Life: Photographs from South African Artists at Home by Paul Duncan

South African Artists at HomeReal Estate Magazine has shared a few photographs from South African Artists at Home by Paul Duncan.

Julia Freemantle describes the book as “an opportunity for insight into how and where” artists live, a “rare and real reflection of the spaces artists create for themselves”.

This photograph shows Hylton Nel, a ceramic artist, painter and sculptor currently residing in a mountainesque town in the Klein Karoo. Nel was born in Zambia and attended boarding school in Kimberley before he created his beautiful living space in a magnificent house on the outskirts of Calitzdorp.

The quirky images, unstyled and natural, keep the feel of the publication authentic and true to the spirit of seeing how these creative, often enigmatic, people really live and the accompanying text too, is more about the people themselves than the spaces, giving you a sense of understanding what they’re all about and what it’s important to them.
