Marlene is exhibiting at Vincent Park!

Marlene is exhibiting her photographs at Vincent Park Shopping Centre in East London this week. Times are from 8am to 5pm until the 21st of December. The exhibition features work from Marlene’s extensive dark room and black and white range. Marlene’s book, DVD series and workshop gift vouchers are also available. These make thoughtful gifts.

Marlene’s dark room range consists of over 120 images. Her collection spans over a period of 30 years.

Her black and white images range from seascapes to lions. Choosing from this collection would make the perfect addition to any space.

Sky meets Land showcases the compelling photographs and reflective journey of Master Fine Art Photographer Marlene Neumann. Marlene refers to her book as a metaphor for “mind meets heart”. Over 100 of her magnificent and moving images appear in her book. More than a coffee-table book, it is filled with insight into her profound life purpose. Experience a ‘mindful shift’ when paging through her visual journey and gain understanding into your own life path. She uses the camera as an extension of herself and in that moment it’s as if the viewer sees the world through her eyes. This book is an extraordinary journey, a celebration of life and nature and the significant lessons to be found in the breath taking natural world.

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. The intention in making the series was to provide people seeking answers to their own life struggles with some idea of where, in themselves, to look. 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.

In her weekend workshops, Marlene teaches students out of the box thinking while pushing their comfort zones through photography . An inspiring weekend workshop where students explore a new world using their cameras. Her weekend workshops cover camera basics and the deep meaning of fine art photography. Marlene shares her wealth of knowledge as a Master Fine Art Photographer and expertise drawing on her 30 years of teaching experience. These renowned weekend workshops take place at the Centre for Photography and Light in East London. The next workshop will be taking place from the 11th to the 13th of May 2018. Early bird tickets and gift vouchers with a saving of R300 are available until the end of December, after which tickets will return to the standard price.

With this amazing selection…make your way to the shopping Centre and browse for the perfect gift!
