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

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.

The garden is currently in full bloom and is under guardianship of Tigger the cat who keeps a watchful eye on the comings and goings around the centre.

The centre features two galleries displaying Marlene’s prolific career in photography. Her Dark Room gallery displays her images that have been developed in the dark room using ‘The Neumann Technique’ which she has developed and perfected in her 30 years of capturing photographs. 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 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.
