Face Of The Day

Amanda Gorence is impressed by Daniel Naudé’s recent projectAnimal Farm::

The book began on a road trip from Cape Town to Mozambique when Naudé experienced a profound encounter with a feral Africanis dog … He began tracking these feral creatures throughout South Africa, capturing regal portraits reminiscent of formal animal paintings of centuries past. Naudé’s Africanis trek soon morphed into a five year exploration of the country’s land, animal and people.

Throughout the book Naudé balances the wild, feral dog with a myriad of domesticated animals and their owners, a combination that alludes to the spectrum of relationships between man and beast.
