“Guido Steenkamp‘s street photography concentrates on the symmetry of life, each picture not only beautifully composed but full of extraordinary geometric juxtapositions. It is the work of an artist with a keen eye for detail, who works in the present, who is drawn to the balance of life and the humour that can be derived from it.
Street photographers come in all guises, with their own aesthetic, sensibility and natural affinity for particular aspects of everyday life. For Steenkamp this means elevating the ordinary to the artistic, the light, form and structure of each picture creating a sense of cinematic brilliance that offers us a different view, an alternative look at the world around us. The seemingly mundane turned into a special moment, given a clarity that would otherwise be forgotten.”
