Cows hit the beach for sun, fun and surf in award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest exhibition, Amapondo which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town next week.

Shot on location along the Transkei’s hauntingly beautiful wild coast, Amapondo features large scale portraits of cattle contentedly chewing the cud in the most unlikely of places – the beach. Rimmer, who worked on the series throughout 2013, is well known for photographing what is real and presenting it as surreal and has certainly succeeded in doing the same again with Amapondo. The series features some magnificent specimens in stunning clarity and detail.

The world renounced photographer who spent his formative years in South Africa is currently based in Australia, and says that Amapondo was one of the most difficult projects he has ever undertaken.
