The Picture of Dorya Glenn is a collaboration between photographer Filip Naudts and the Dutch-Chinese writer/artist Julie O’yang. The result is a photographic romance noir, a dark surrealistic sci-fi photo novella in which the authors also play the main characters: Julie in the guise of the alien Dorya Glenn, and Filip in that of himself.
Yasser ‘Mierkat’ Booley began producing photographs in 1993 on the eve of the ‘new’ South Africa. He grew up under the high tension of a politically charged South Africa in a conservative Cape Malay family from the Bo-Kaap. From an early age, he became an observant student who wanted to master and capture the eclectic ‘rainbow nation’.
