Marlene Neumann and her team at PE Homemakers won a silver award for Design and Excellence at PE Homemakers last week! At her first ever PE Homemakers, Marlene’s beautiful stand was recognized and given silver ahead of many other wonderful exhibitors. Marlene would like to thank the PE public who supported her at this show… Stay tuned for Marlene at Decorex this year in Johannesburg!
Marlene was interviewed on Kingfisher FM by Ethan Black on 6 June 2017. In the successful interview, Marlene discussed her upcoming exhibition at the PE Homemakers show and how she uses the medium of photography to connect to the world around her.
“Not only is it an outstanding example of master photographer Marlene Neumann’s work, the piece is titled Aloe Warrior, an image Neumann describes as depicting the tenacity and perseverance of the aloe to survive, despite having no shelter from the weather and clinging to a precipice. In that regard, it is a fitting celebration, standing strong in the face of adversity. “

Marlene hosted her 86th Weekend Workshop on Creative Photography last weekend and it was overwhelmingly successful. Everyone who attended felt more aware of their surroundings and awake by the end of the weekend. All except Tigger, the center guardian! The course is aimed at anyone who needs a shift in the way they think and feel about photography and about their lives. Contact Marlene directly for more information about upcoming courses.
Marlene’s Buckaroo Project went for their weekly sterilization drive into Cintsa East township. They also fed local dogs. The food was kindly donated by the East London public. Please donate food if you can- these dogs are hungry and Buckaroo is running low on supplies. We need dog food, blankets and old kennels, as the upcoming winter months can be very harsh! To donate, contact Marlene directly at 083 321 3391 or drop off at 8 Kent Road, Vincent.
