Michelle van Aswegen

Being brought up in the Vaal area, I studied and completed my degree in Photography at the Vaal University of Technology in 2006 and relocated to Pretoria, South Africa, where I am currently based. Since then I have been active as a photographer, retoucher and part-time lecturer. 

I am a devoted climber and got infected by the dynamics of expeditions, people, nature and the interaction between the two.  There is an intimate moment which exists when edging towards the limit or being placed under the spotlight in front of a big lens. I can describe it as a delicate tension but whatever it is, is what I strive to capture.
