Periodically Shirli packs her overland vehicle and heads out to some wild destination to capture and build a library of images for her ‘fine-art’ portfolio. She stays up to three weeks in some areas with her cameras and her toes deep in the sand, her sabbatical is precious and her adventures are part of the experience.

 

The images are personal and push the boundaries of convention. This is concept photography with the focus on wildlife, landscapes and tribal imagery that conveys some feeling of Africa’s character seen through Shirli’s eyes and her lens. Sun bleached bones lying on the dunes or storm clouds about to break over the savannah tell a story which is intrinsically African and a tribute to that area or creature. Please view Shirli's image portfolios available for purchase on the dropdown menu or the links below.

 

“I don’t quite identify with the conventional term of ‘fine-art’; I prefer to use ‘concept photography’ for my own portfolio. I am passionate and excited by the limitless possibilities of what I can push and there are many. Coming across bones or horns of some fallen creature, I cannot help wonder what that story was? How did their life come to an end? What were their last moments? "
