I am currently working on several projects; all are still actively edited. For further details, please contact me.
For the past 18 months, photographer A.J. Pretorius has been working on a study of Belgium, resulting in "Belgica - A composite diptych". Stylistically drawing on documentary photography, Pretorius does not attempt to chronicle, but uses the motifs of the genre to explore the character of this small European country. Pretorius conceived the project to challenge the primacy of the individual photograph and any claim to objectivity. Through a "composite diptych", the viewer is encouraged to explore pairs of photographs in pseudo-sequential order to discover relations for themselves. Originally formulated for the Web, the photographer is currently investigating ways to bring "Belgica" to a gallery setting.
