REPRESENTED ARTIST | HOUGAARD MALAN

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER HOUGAARD MALAN

Hougaard Malan is well known in local and international fine-art landscape circles for his uncompromising attention to the technical considerations of his craft. Combined with an instinctively creative eye, he is considered by many to be South Africa’s leading landscape fine-art photographer. Hougaard Malan was born in Kroonstad, South Africa, but grew up in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. His mother was a musician who played a significant role in mentoring an appreciation of the arts in her son. Meanwhile, Hougaard's father and grandfather were passionate about the natural world and instilled in him a love for the great outdoors. Malan family holidays were invariably taken on the Wild Coast and Namibia and played a formative part in shaping Hougaard's appreciation and fascination for the beauty of South Africa and Namibia's wilderness areas. The artist cites the most significant highlight in his photographic life as the month he spent in Namibia in February 2011, capturing the beauty of a traditionally dry region after extensive rains, which transformed that country's vast desert areas. This transformation had a profound effect on him, and he remains obsessed with the prospect of seeing and capturing it again and again. Other geographies of great photographic interest to Hougaard are northern Namibia, Pondoland and new African photographic frontiers. Hougaard's photographic skills are self-taught, thanks to the emergence of a content-rich internet. He started using a DSLR camera at the early age of nineteen and has pursued a creative photographic career ever since.

SANDS OF THE DESERT | NAMIB IN FLOOD We tend to think of sand as a fairly simple material made up of one or two elements, but add water and each element acts in a different way, splitting into a beautiful concoction of liquids, each with a different colour, weight and viscosity. When the rain ceases and the sun evaporates the water, it all dries differently, creating this beautiful variety of colours and textures. This image shows just how complex sand and its resulting pattern and texture...

RESTORED | NAMIB IN FLOOD Brilliant morning light illuminates the Keerweder valley in the Namib Rand. This private nature reserve is one of the greatest success stories of landscape rewilding. Formerly used for Karakoel sheep farming for decades, more than 200 000 hectares have been rewilded and defenced by various parties who chose to join the private conservancy. There is also as much land whose owners partake in the greater conservation effort but aren't part officially part of the ...

CANOLA MOON A bright yellow full moon climbs into the sky over an idyllic scene in the Overberg farmlands during the August full moon of 2021. While the elements like the hills, trees and chapel are permanent, scenes like this seem to appear and disappear from year to year as the farmers rotate crops, some more photogenic than others. It might easily be another decade or two before the farmer/farmers who own the fields decide to plant as much canola again, which makes this scene as bea...
