Our Photographer

Emmelyn van Zanten

Emmelyn grew up in the green hills of Northern Ireland, but has made the vast expanses of the Karoo her home.
She enjoys the beautiful simplicity of life on a remote farm surrounded by angora goats and
flocks of sheep grazing in the Karoo's untouched landscape. Emmelyn takes great pride in the Karoo and describes it as a place so
pure it humbles you, where you can gain a real sense of freedom and be inspired by the power of nature.

Emmelyn's love for photography was ignited when she first explored South Africa in 2010 and wanted to capture every detail of such a
beautiful country. In particular, she enjoys using photography to highlight the beauty in features which can so easily be overlooked in a
fast paced life. Taking photos of the Karoo spectacle frame collection allows her to capture the essence of this brand; simple elegance.
