I’m a Cape Town based photographer whose work explores the intersection between the denotative and connotative aspects of the medium. I aspire towards creating images that point beyond what they are of and reflect reality in a mysteriously deepened form.

Prints of the images on this site are available for sale. Please contact me at sean(at)seanwilson.co.za to enquire about sizes, availability, editions and pricing.
