“Winds of Change,” a photo series by Tessa O’Halloran

“I have been creating images since my early teens as a way to process my environment and capture an awareness of the fragility of life.”

The artist lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. These photographs were both taken in 2014 but in two different countries. The ‘winds of change’ image was taken in a small town in the Northern Cape of South Africa.

“This image was a lucky snapshot of a moment I saw out of the corner of my eye. I picked up my camera and waited for the wind to blow through the window and I froze this moment in time. For me this is the image of the universal human condition – it is a slow and powerful image. “

At the end of 2014 she moved from Botswana back to South Africa, her homeland, which was “a strange process of uprooting and trying to reroot again in a country I belonged to but felt foreign to me.”
