I recently had my first solo exhibition. My amazing sister, Karlien de Wet, organised everything.
It was a very strange experience… I have never shared my work with anyone, in that sense, before. I was scared. Were people going to like it? Would people buy it? The insecurities crept in. A week before the exhibition I had a friend, and one of my photography heroes, Gerhard Uys curate the images I selected. His reaction to the work was amazing. He loved it! After that, I wasn’t worried anymore.
The restaurant was fully booked. I couldn’t believe it! I got scared again.
The night of the exhibition came, everyone was incredible! I couldn’t believe the reaction towards my work.
A lot of the work was sold as well and that humbled me even more. The fact that people liked my work enough to buy it astounded me!
So thank you to everyone involved. I want to specifically thank Eddie and his beautiful wife from Capital Plants but most of all I want to thank my sister, Karlien. Without whom none of this would have been possible and I would not be who I am today.
