Spontaneity and play are at the heart of photographer Johno Mellish’s practice. Based in the Boland, South Africa, he photographs friends and strangers alike, collaborating with his subjects in the creation of his surreal, fictional narratives. “My pictures are exercises in mimicry or transferral-” he explains, “experiments in finding means and modes for the transportation / translation of values, ideas, stories, histories and narratives across time – in short ossifications / setting of abstractions. But mostly they’re pictures.”
