Who Goes There?


  Etienne MaraisEtienne Marais is a photographer based in Centurion, South Africa. His work includes portraits, landscapes, macro photography and a method to capture stereoscopic (3D) images with standard photographic equipment.

In his subjects he aims to capture a hidden essence, an unguarded moment where the person shows something beyond the ego and the barriers of awareness. He prefers to create a chiaroscuro-effect when lighting his subjects. Chiaroscuro is a term in art for a contrast between light and dark. His inspiration comes from photographers like Jan Saudek, Annie Leibovitz, Fayyaz Ahmed and Richard Avedon.

He has worked in the South African film industry as an editor and cameraman and is also involved in art, music, writing, web design and is a qualified IT engineer.
