Finally Marlene has larger sized images for clients

Marlene Neumann with Epson P9000

Marlene printed her first exclusive XXL Fine Art Photographs on her Epson P9000. This is the largest print that she has ever done. “This size printed on my Epson finally does my images justice,” said Marlene.

All those clients that kept asking for a larger size – here it is… 1118 x 1724mm (44″ x 67″). The colours were absolutely perfect and Marlene watched anxiously, waiting for the first XXL Farm Gates to be produced.

Marlene was amazed by the quality of her image and kept looking at the beautiful image that she created in the dark room with pride.

This new size is perfect for corporates and homes that need their double volume walls filled.

Marlene’s original darkroom Fine Art Photographs were similar in size. Select images will be available in the XXL size. To view online or email Marlene for more information neumann@worldonline.co.za

Making the connection with Riverside Reflections

Marlene in Gallery Riverside Reflections

A happy client and special lady Margie Dillin collects her treasured image, Riverside Reflections from Marlene’s Gallery. Margie says Riverside Reflections will hang in a very special place in her home.

Marlene’s photographs emanate a feeling of calmness and serenity. There is always one image that will resonates with someone.

For Margie that image is Riverside Reflections. As Margie mentioned to Marlene every time she looks at the image there is something new that she notices. The new element adds to her connection with Marlene’s Fine Art Photograph. To her story.

Marlene’s images are unique. With her “Neumann” technique Marlene creates a work of art that transforms any space.

Celebrating Life Through a Lens

Marlene’s work has been featured in the January edition of SAFAIR In Flight Magazine.

“Neumann’s collection is vast and covers a range of subjects such as landscapes, her travels, wildlife and more. One specific range that is close to her heart is her black-and-white range­­ – a collection of provocative, striking and powerful imagery. ‘Fine art photography is about emotion, intuition and connection,’ she says. ‘I am interested in the spirit, the essence of the subject, not the colours. I want the message t has for me to be seen by the world. Back in the day I would never speak freely about the subject, I had to guard what I said or I would not be taken seriously. Things have changed. I believe that the world is seeing that things have to be integrated, the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. Black-and-white allows for all this. Colour can be a distraction.’ “

Marlene Neumann’s Buckaroo Sterilization Project has received some excellent news! Local vets and the East London SPCA will assist with the sterilization project and as a result, 28 dogs are being sterilized every month. This will have a massive knock on effect in the area and improve the health and well-being of the dogs that are sterilized.

Donations of food, blankets, kennels (or materials to build kennels), water bowls, leads and collars can be donated at Marlene’s Centre 8 Kent Road, Vincent. Contributions to the Buckaroo fund can be made online or by contacting Marlene directly at neumann@worldonline.co.za or at 083 321 3391. To stay up to date with the Buckaroo Project, like Marlene’s Facebook Page.

It’s that time of year again! The Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light was open as part of the Pam Golding Gardens of East London Show. There were craft and food stalls at the Centre and Buckaroo himself made an appearance. Over 15k was raised for the charity, which will go towards the sterilisation drive.

A very delicious fruit cake

The whole event was hosted and organised by the Buckaroo team, who would like to thank all those who took time to visit the garden, and special thanks to those who made the Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light the first garden they visited.

The Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light was opened 10 years ago to be a place of healing and creative energy. In the centre are two galleries that exhibit the Master Fine Art Photographer’s work. The gallery exhibits Marlene’s Dark Room range of artworks that have been developed using the world renowned Neumann Technique.

The Light Room displays Marlene’s Black and White photography, which she is currently producing photographs for. Focusing on landscapes and nature, these images manage to draw people in and ground them in the present.

The centre is the site of many holisitic events on the East London calendar. Iyengar Yoga classes are held in the gallery every Monday and Thursday. The centre becomes a concert venue every once in a while for International acts such as Desert Rose. Marlene herself hosts a Creativity through Photography course twice a year, which welcomes students from across the country to learn how to capture photographs with meaning. The garden is opened up once a year for the Pam Goulding Gardens of East London event once a year.
