Exhibiting Artist: Marie Jordan (South Africa and Monaco)
Marie Jordan (b. 1958). After having played international basketball and county golf all her life Marie had to find a new outlet when health became an issue for her. With her love for travel, nature and the great outdoors, photography was an easy progression and became her next hobby. In 2011 Marie’s children presented her with her first camera and life took off again.
To date, Marie has sold many photography works in the UK and South Africa donating the proceeds to charity. Since her husband’s retirement from motor racing, the couple has spent their winters in Cape Town and Marie loves to travel in Africa. The photographs presented at START were taken in Kolmanskop, Namibia, once among the richest towns in Africa in the early 1900's before it was deserted and slowly reclaimed by the Namib Desert in the late 1920s.
