South African born photographer Brett Meredith (Johannesburg, 1973) graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in May 2016. His surreal, often paradoxical images are an existential exploration of what it means and feels like to be human. They span space, time and culture, bringing modern and primitive elements together in an apparently incongruent but thought-provoking way. Brett is particularly interested in the dynamics between man, technology and the new digital landscapes that we explore and inhabit; a relationship in which man moves further away from the natural world towards a synthetic reality.
