For the past 15 years, Gerard has focused on kid’s photography.
He has developed an impressive list of clients including Vogue Bambini, Collezioni, Hooligans, Babesta, Papillon NY, Celine, Kenzo, Tartine et Chocolat, Jacadi, Mayoral, Chicco, Dodie, Renault and McDonald’s.
What sets Gerard apart is his sophisticated approach to photographing children. His style and aesthetic is fashion forward. Children are not reduced to being simply cute and little. In Gerard's images, children are as they are in the real world; fully-fledged with individual personalities. They are conscious of what they wear. They are thinking and feeling. They are stylish, opinionated and articulate.
In recent years, Gerard has extended his repertoire to include food photography. To see more of this work, email us.
The Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg has become a sanctuary for Zimbabwean refugees. The Church has opened it doors allowing hundreds of people to settle in its halls, corridors and stairwells. Although the church has provided a safe haven for refugees, it is struggling to cope with the enormity of the situation.
In March 2008 during the first Zimbabwean election period, Ilan Godfrey spent time with the church inhabitants as they waiting in anticipation for the election results to be announced. Most people have no interest in returning to Zimbabwe to vote even though they wanted to see an immediate end to Robert Mugabe's long and traumatic reign. It became apparent that a lot of people feared for their lives. In some cases the refugees did not want to be clearly identified or make their names known for fear of reprisals against their families back in Zimbabwe.
The growing incursion of illegal immigrants contributes to unlawful squatting in South Africa. Most arrive destitute, jobless and homeless. This results in the large majority finding their way to squatter areas. It is estimated that 80% of illegal immigrants inhabit informal housing settlements and squatter camps. This body of work reflects the ongoing struggle of people standing together against one man's ideals.
Alistair Redding's Calais documents the experiences of those living in the Jungle Refugee Camp in Calais, France. The images illustrate the limbo in which refugees find themselves: they have escaped the unbearable circumstances of their countries of origin but are unable to function as fully-fledged members of society in their new homes.
Essential to Redding's practice is constructing his photographs in conversation with his subjects. In this way, they are given the ability to build their own narratives in collaboration with the photographer and they are validated in a space and time where they have previously been marginalized.
