#AsSeenInPrint: Storm on the Horizon

KwaZulu-Natal is one of South Africa’s most ecologically
diverse provinces. It is home to two UNESCO World Heritage
Sites: iSimangaliso Wetland Park and the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park. Elsa Bleda looks skywards, capturing lightning as it strikes tumultuous clouds. Each photograph was taken at midnight,
nd later post-produced with rich blues, pinks and purples.
 



 
The result is otherworldly and nature’s power radiates from each shot. You can almost hear the thunder crack. The series, titled Heavens, is an extension of Bleda’s main body of work, Nightscapes, in which she captures South African inner cities after dark. Those pictures are Blade Runner-esque, drawing on cyberpunk and “post-future gothic.”
