Adventure, an uncertain journey where the outcome is not determined. A state of mind where one deliberately sets out to expose oneself to unknown elements, risks and uncertainties in the pursuit of excitement, stimulation and rewards.
Knowing that all your efforts may come to nought heightens your sense of achievement when you are successful.
As photographers we seek moments where time, light and subjects come together and present themselves for those who are prepared for the fleeting moments as they unfold.
While these moments are typically short lived, they can leave a lasting impact on our memories and emotions adding a sense of joy and excitement to our lives and it's important to embrace and appreciate them.
For over 30 years, Chad Henning has been chasing the light.
Inspired by Cartier Bresson's 'decisive moment,' this passionate and energetic individual has been captivated by the tension connected to the convergence of a single moment suspended in time.
In his advertising career, Chad is well known for integrating multiple images that make up concept-driven visual narratives and for the specialist liquid work he shoots for Heineken.
On a personal level, Chad pursues pure and precise moments that shape memories and is perenially surprised when the perfect shot presents itself despite the odds. When the elements align, it's a heaven-sent affirmation.
"I love unexpected perspectives, how a polariser knocks back reflections affecting the depth and intensity of colour, and the poetic effect of motion blurs. Also, the vastness of Ansell Adam's landscapes and Robert Frank's sensitive documentary work."
Chad's collection can be found at his gallery in the iconic Bo-Kaap, that colourful Cape Town suburb that international visitors love! Here, diverse open-edition collections feature landscapes, wildlife, and the best-seller Bo-Kaap buildings.
In this unique space, while Chad embraces the opportunity to invest in South Africa's future with defining moments, his customers connect with images close to their hearts.
Expect a dramatic black-and-white shot of stallion zebras clashing as they claim territory in a dry anddusty backlit background—an elephant towering above the lens or a vulnerable giraffe drinking at an exposed waterhole—also, a selection of inspiring Cape Town landscapes rich in texture and detail, and so much more.
Authenticated limited edition originals in varying sizes and 20-year-old lith prints are also available.
