The landscapes are exquisitely composed onto film, as Koos's methods follow the skills and discipline of traditional photography.
These epic images also serve as a historical recording of an untouched landscape, and as Africa starts to put more pressure on land resources, these wildernesses may be lost to us forever.
Koos immerses himself into the landscapes of remote areas for extended periods of time, to determine the best vantage points to express the beauty of all that surrounds him.
This meticulous technique puts the emphasis on the quality of the photograph rather than the quantity of shots in an area.
It also ensures very little post-processing is necessary, and the utmost care has been taken to match the prints with the original transparency.
The solitude experienced in these vast natural environments conveys a spiritual aspect which is an integral theme expressed in the ambience captured in these images.
Koos has expressed his wonderment and thankfulness to the Creator in these magnificent photographs of desolate coastline, rolling fields, harsh desert, imposing mountains, rivers and waterfalls, inviting us to glimpse into these moments of grace.
