This February, for the month of LOVE Marlene shared her thoughts on her photography,
“My life’s work is from the heart.
Each image is a metaphor for a
deeper connection to life and to yourself.”
Share Marlene’s amazing work with people you love. There is always one image that resonates with you.
Marlene has broken through the boundaries of Fine Art Photography in South Africa. She is renowned for inventing her unique black and white darkroom process known as the “Neumann technique”
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.
Susan Ray Fox approached Marlene as the founder of this amazing group that works with animals in the Sea Vista settlement in St Francis. The funds raised will be used to assist the dogs and their owners.
Marlene pushed the audience out of their comfort zones. Drawing on her recent experience Marlene shared the space outside her comfort zone that she has lived in since her fall.
At the end of August Marlene broke and fractured her wrist and hip bone when she was on the beach in the early morning with her dogs. Sharing her experience and vulnerability Marlene reminded everyone that they have to WAKE UP!
Animal lovers and people connected to Marlene supported this worthy cause.
The event was hosted at the St Francis Links and Marlene had the crowd following her outside on to the beautifully manicured lawns moving to the music and celebrating life.
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.
They spent three intense days immersed in a magical world of light, laughter and photography. ISO’s, shutterspeeds and apertures.
Buckaroo volunteers were at 36 stations, from Kidds Beach to Crossways on the East Coast at the end of May.
During the street collection Buckaroo was driving around town. He was greeted with waves and laughter from everyone.
Marlene expressed her gratitude and love to everyone that supported this fundraising drive.
“Thank you to the public of East London for your generous support of the Buckaroo sterilisation project!
Thank you to the 100 volunteers who helped shake a tin in the collection.
Thank you to the Buckaroo Team who worked tirelessly to put this together.
Thank you to the shop owners,” added Marlene.
Her powerful talk ‘Outside your Comfort Zone’ challenged the ladies and left them feeling inspired and energized.
“It is an exhilarating experience. People are productive when they are inspired” said Marlene.
Over 200 ladies joined Neumann at the Abbottsford Christian Centre in East London. The charity tea raised funds
for St Bernard’s Hospice.
Marlene had the ladies up, moving and shaking. The message Marlene emphasised was that each one of us is here to make a difference. With her multimedia presentation and creative use of the space each person left with a fresh perspective.
I am powerful, I am creative, I am my own best friend the affirmations echoed as the ladies read their cards.
Marlene tailors her talks to the audience and the needs of the organisation or company.
“The Ladies Tea was amazing; we discussed Marlene’s talk for days after the event. Everyone left feeling inspired
and motivated to ‘get out of their comfort zone,” Ntando
