About African Eyes

African Eyes showcases the photography of Max Bastard, a Social Documentary, Portrait, Travel and Landscape photographer based in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa.

Max is a photographer with nearly 25 years experience in the field. His rural affiliations have given him a deep insight into community engagement protocol and helped him master both isiZulu and isiXhosa, which assists in producing work that reveals an intimate yet respectful connection with his subjects. This connection creates visual narratives that are both deeply honest and powerful in their ability to provide social commentary. His career of twenty five years that spans commercial, industrial, corporate, fashion, landscape and travel, has given him an eclectic edge in determining and producing quality images for media and publishing and has equipped him with the knowledge and experience to get the job done even under the most trying of circumstances.
