People of the Klein Karoo Part 1 by Jill Coleman

We have the highest regard for Jill Coleman’s skills and sensibility as a photographer. See these powerful portraits of the people of the Klein Karoo in South Africa and then read what Jill has to say below.

Comments & shares are most welcome. We will also have a second installment here on aamora to look forward to.


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 images are just part of a series of literally thousands.

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.”
