Wicus Leeuwner

Based in the Overberg, close to Caledon in the Western Cape Province, he is a dairy farmer with a camera and a special gift of seeing the world.

His love of nature inspires all his work. Wicus is a crane conservationist with a passion for South Africa’s national bird - the Blue Crane. Due to the joint effort of the Overberg Crane Group and the whole community, the number of Blue Cranes in this area has grown from only 600 two decades ago to 12 000 at the moment.

In celebration of the Overberg, Wicus has taken many photographs which capture the ever changing pattern of the rolling wheat fields of the Overberg. The fields vary from virgin green in winter to golden brown in summer, the colours contrasting sharply with the intense blue of the sky and the stark white of the clouds.

Wicus has joined other well known photographers like Colla Swart, JJ van Heerden and international photographic legend Freeman Patterson in presenting photographic workshops all over the country.

At Dassiesfontein we stock a range of prints, postcards, calendars and related products from the Ziya Fana Images collection.
