Over 40 people joined Marlene for a special morning to celebrate the launch of her new book, Ebb & Flow.
Marlene shared her connection with nature and her inspiration in capturing her thoughts as she walked on the beach in the early morning.
The profoundly personal hours with Marlene and her enthusiasm and unique outlook of life can be found in the 156 pages of words and images of Ebb & Flow.
Marlene’s words weave a comforting space to face life, its challenges and to savour the magical moments.
Her presentation and talk captured the guests attention and drew them into her world.
Marlene had a delicious sampling of her vegan cooking for her guests. A selection of herbal teas and refreshing mineral water with lemon quenched their thirst.
This was a taster for the body and soul. Amazing, innovative, creative ways to spend time learning from Master Fine Art Photographer Marlene Neumann. This years Saturday morning sessions are well worth attending and include something vegan.
Marlene’s Creativity Through Photography Workshop transformed students. Their way of seeing the world and themselves altered the first weekend in June.
Students from all over South Africa gathered at Marlene’s Centre for Photography and Light.

Thank you to the Buckaroo Team who worked tirelessly to put this together.
Thank you to the shop owners,” added Marlene.

Marlene’s inspiring dvd series, Capturing What People Don’t Talk About, is based on Marlene’s realisation of what it is to be ‘truly human’ and what being authentic really means.

From a broader perspective, the objective was to help raise the vibration on the Earth, so that people can more easily become aware of how to live an enriching life.

Marlene Neumann delivered three of her large photographic prints to Harvey World Travel this week. This is part of her drive to make corporate spaces more connected to nature. Marlene advises many businesses that bringing nature into corporate spaces has overwhelming positive effects on the entire business and its staff. The Master Fine Art Photographer has been photographing nature for over 30 years and firmly believes in the positive effects nature has on the body, mind and soul. Everyone benefits from being around nature. Studies have found that hospital patients that have beds next to windows overlooking trees have faster healing rates than those whose beds aren’t next to windows.
In an article in Forbes, Mandy Leeming, a design and development manager at Interface says: “Contact with nature and design elements which mimic natural materials has been shown to positively impact health, performance and concentration, and reduce anxiety and stress. When it comes to creating office spaces that achieve this, it’s about taking the nuances of nature that we subconsciously respond to, such as colours and textures, and interpreting them. Ultimately improving the well-being, productivity and creativity of the workforce is key to the success of market leading organisations.”
Marlene shares these sentiments and this is the reason her images are often used in such spaces, as the connection to nature is so strong and powerful.
Harvey World Travel owner Rohan Pillay contacted Marlene for images for their boardroom, and Marlene found trees that would bring the right energy into this space. The images that were selected were all trees, which make perfect additions to boardrooms for the atmosphere of strength, wisdom and security that they create.
