Jill tells us:

“People Of The Klein Karoo is a photo essay done over a period of five years. It is taken of a small farming community in the Western Cape of South Africa. There is Hendrik, Beetjie and more including my favourite Hans.

We are trying to publish a book and raise funds to get it printed. This will benefit me as well as the folks there. These ten images are just part of a series of literally thousands of images. I am trying to raise funds from the book to be able to travel elsewhere and do another series of photographs.

I am a recovering alcoholic and bipolar and have spent the better part of four years in Psychiatric Institutions where my treatment was appalling, I intend to do something about this and have written to various magazines about my treatment. This book will help the injustices of this sometimes terrible land we live in. “
