The internationally renowned creative team, photographer Kevin Mackintosh and production designer Daryl McGregor are arriving in South Africa this month! With their arrival comes the excitement for upcoming projects...
Based in the UK and working between New York, London and Paris, Kevin Mackintosh draws off his African roots to bring his distinctive and highly stylised visual universe to life. Describing this as a kind of ‘handwriting’, Kevin infuses his work with elements borrowed from film, art and theatre. His often dramatic and always evocative images create narratives that captivate the viewer. Blending traditional still-life compositions with fashion and a sense of theatre, Kevin’s work has gained wide-spread international recognition. His collaboration with The Bolshoi Opera and Royal Ballet Company was acquired by the National Portrait Gallery in London. He is currently completing his second book, ‘Manipulated African Landscapes’.
Production designer Daryl McGregor was born and educated in South Africa. After obtaining his fine art degree he began his career during a trip to London when he was asked to design sets for a fashion shoot. He has since cultivated a highly successful career as a set and interior designer, and art director. His distinctive taste and masterful eye for detail has led him to work with industry heavyweights like Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, and for brands such as Hermes, Kenzo, The Royal Opera and the Royal Ballet. His editorial work includes Dazed & Confused, Harper’s Bazaar, L'Uomo Vogue, LIFE, The World of Interiors, Man of the World, King King and many other titled. Daryl is based in New York, London and Cape Town.
