Throwback Thursday with Marlene Neumann

Boxes and boxes of old press releases, articles and newspaper clippings have scattered the office floors over the past few days. Finding articles, scanning them in and digitizing over 32 years of work allows for moments of reflection and time to pause and see how much Marlene’s world has changed. For the next couple of weeks, Marlene will be posting Throwback Thursdays on Facebook to give you insight into her career and her many hairstyle changes! Find an article published in SA Photo in 2000 here! How times have changed!

 

Sharing a remarkable Christmas story

Marlene Neumann, South African master fine art photographer rescued a baby dove four years ago. She found her abandoned one stormy night. In the past few years thousands of people have followed Sophie’s journey online. As an inspirational speaker Marlene has shared many thoughtful messages and lessons she has learnt while raising Sophie. This tiny being has become a beacon of light, hope, love and gratitude. Sophie brings joy to the hearts of many. Enjoy the video sharing SOPHIE’S SONG.

Rescue dove reaches 4th milestone

We take for granted how frail and fleeting a dove’s life is in nature. We don’t appreciate the beauty of small animals we see almost daily. Most of us don’t even notice in our mad rush. When Sophie was rescued as a stranded baby dove from a broken nest on the ground after a stormy night, we had no idea that thousands would learn from her journey. Fine art photographer Marlene Neumann and Sophie share an amazing bond. They have opened so many hearts to appreciating the little things and feeling greater compassion for animals and people. TODAY is a day of celebration – Sophie turns four! 🙂

Philanthropy is a state of being not just doing

Marlene Neumann’s love for animals goes beyond a handout and the odd good deed. It is part of who she is and maybe her intuitive eye for photography takes her beyond being the viewer. She feels everything. Her quote she is known for: “I photograph not what I see, but what I feel. “She heads up her own project called Buckaroo, which provides support for animal NGO’s and at present Marlene’s focus is sterilisation in the informal settlements. When everyone has left, in her own time, Marlene personally checks up on the progress of the dogs. The photograph above says it all.  The dogs who were skin and bone are looking healthier. Marlene has sunk in food and water bowls so that the pigs don’t knock them over. This detail worries her until she finds a solution.  Her actions teach dog owners and children compassion towards animals. Marlene believes that every positive action and good deed has a ripple effect, no matter how small it may seem in the animal crisis in our country.

Buckaroo helps the dogs again

___fb_img_0227

Marlene’s Buckaroo Initiative is helping their third informal settlement as part of the BUCKAROO STERILISATION DRIVE. “ONE HOME HAD 16 DOGS…yesterday was a hard day with moments of ecstasy..as we removed wire from a pup’s neck and replaced it with a bright red collar…my Buckaroo Team and I delivered 15 kennels, gave out food parcels to the owners. Another 10 dogs were taken home after being sterilised by the ELSPCA which was funded by the Buckaroo project..Lionel and Zuki thank you for your compassion you showed those animals…We cannot comprehend the hardship of these dogs.. (see album) STERILISATION is the key…If each one one of us did something..We could make a difference in one dog’s life…love Marlene”
