The Kent Andreasen Silicone Summer series depicts everyday life in South Africa. While akin photographers often focus on unique events and shows, Andreasen proves that the ordinary is actually quite extraordinary, especially within the country's beautiful landscape.
Andreasen believes that daily settings are often overlooked, but without reason. Indeed, his snapshots prove that there is much artistic activity taking place at local pools, gas stations, construction sites and restaurant patios.
Both solitary and cramped public settings are depicted in Silicone Summer. Andreasen achieves this range by visiting numerous spaces, providing an eclectic look at South African life.
In some instances, pictures are barren without the trace of a particular subject. This absence of distraction enables viewers to meditate on the project.
