Decorex Johannesburg a great success

Decorex Johannesburg 2018


Marlene exhibited her Exclusive Fine Art Photographs at Decorex in August. Her stand featured work from her extensive dark room and black and white range.

Marlene’s dark room range consists of over 120 images. Her collection spans over a period of 30 years. Her black and white collection ranges from seascapes to desert grass and ancient trees. With new photographs being added this collection was viewed with interest.

People stood in awe and admired Marlene’s unique technique and her extensive portfolio. There was continued support from clients adding to their extensive collections. Her Aloe range and the Doors series were top picks at this year’s show.

Orders can be placed with Marlene neumann@worldonline.co.za and her gallery can be viewed online.

Other items of interest at Decorex were her book Sky meets Land. 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. Marlene 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.

Marlene book, Sky Meets Land and her DVD series can be ordered directly from Marlene. For more information please email neumann@worldonline.co.za

Marlene is available for consultations and will skillfully match her Fine Art Photographs with your space. For those of you that missed meeting Master Fine Art Photographer Marlene Neumann she will be back in Gauteng for Homemakers in 2019.

Marlene exhibits new Forest Walk Collection

Master Black and White Photographer Marlene Neumann showcases her new Forest Walk Collection. These images capture the sacred essence of the forest where Marlene spent some time to renew her vows to spirit.

The absolute silence of the forest emanates in her new collection. Marlene began to notice things that she had never seen before. The new range is all done using a macro lens.

Marlene’s compelling photographs reveal the reflective journey of her exceptional intuition. Her passion for life and a deep connection to nature are reflected in her profound images.

She has the ability to capture the essence of each subject. Her images draw a deep emotional response from the viewer.

Marlene’s P9000 Epson printer produces incredible tones and allows for amazing detail in the darker areas. The Intimate forest range make a stunning collection hanging together or holding their own space.

Marlene shares Buckaroo’s holistic approach

Rotary Gately talk

Marlene was invited to share her BUCKAROO INITIATIVE’S holistic approach to sterilising township dogs. The Rotary Club of Gately were all ears. Marlene’s passion was felt when she spoke from her heart. She is working to change the mindset and hearts of corporates.

Marlene stressed the importance of corporates to recognise and support animals. Animals are sentient beings that must be seen. Marlene’s message is that we can no longer turn a blind eye to what is happening. Animals are not receiving the funding or acknowledgement they deserve.

The overpopulation of dogs in areas has become an epidemic. And no one is doing anything about it…

Marlene’s message is, if we taught people that to change your heart, you have to change your thinking… we would live in a better world.

Buckaroo is dependent on public funding. Any monthly contribution is most welcome. The funds are used to sterilise, feed and provide basic healthcare to dogs and cats in impoverished areas.

There are a number of items that would make the task that Marlene and her Buckaroo team face each visit easier. Among them is the desperate need for carry boxes. Every cent adds up and helps Buckaroo make a difference in the animals lives. The donation form is online .

Buckaroo corporate team building with Marlene

Buckaroo Century21 Team Building

Marlene has initiated an extraordinary TEAM BUILDING EXPERIENCE for corporate companies that are socially aware. This can become part of their CSI programs. CENTURY 21 real estate has taken the lead in making a difference in dogs and people’s lives in impoverished communities in the East London area.

This amazing project kicked off yesterday to an incredible start. Marlene is working closely with companies for their Corporate social investing (CSI) programs. CSI is a strategy for implementing social commitment in a concrete way by using company resources to improve the quality of life in disadvantaged communities.

This hands-on approach includes companies experiencing a day in the life of BUCKAROO. Goals include fundraising. Money raised is used to sterilise, feed, medicate and provide kennels and runs for Buckaroo dogs. Margie Dillin and Mario Raffa owners of Century 21 and staff have committed to go the whole hog.

Initiator of the BUCKAROO sterilisation project Marlene Neumann can be contacted for a different kind of team building experience. Contact her directly on 0833213391 or email neumann@worldonline.co.za to make a difference…

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.’ “

Sailing into the New Year with a brand new image

Marlene is proud to launch her brand new addition to her Black and White series: River Boat. This image can be found on display in her gallery, The Light Room, at the Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light.

Every image in the Black and White series is a reflection of Marlene’s intuitive ability to capture light and a sense of timelessness as well as the emotion within a landscape. River Boat is no exception! With its magnificent use of light, the viewer is brought out of the heavy darkness and into a space of light and calm where rocky obstacles are laid to one side and one is able to take a personal journey to a quiet place of reflection, only returning to the shore of reality when absolutely ready.

Studies conducted by the European Centre for Environment and Human Health have found that images of water have profoundly positive effects on the wellbeing of viewers. Spaces containing water images drastically reduce stress and anxiety levels of those who are in the spaces. The study also found that energy and productivity levels in work spaces containing images of water, and recovery rates in healing spaces containing images of water were much higher than in spaces without.

What better way to start off the New Year than with an image of strength, calm and light?
