Gary Van Wyk's exhibition Private Public opened last night at Heidi's Photographers Gallery za.
When I say this charming young man is everyone's favourite photographer, I mean that quite literally, you can see by the exhibition pictures, most of Cape Town turned out- his enthusiasm and passion for photography is contagious.

Gary was mostly rooted to the spot with a steady stream of warm kisses and congratulatory hugs from hundreds of people.
|you can tell which one is Gary|
The photographs captured moments, private, spontaneous and decisive. Our friend Ilaria who is in the first photograph, waving a hello in a doorway wearing a beautiful billowing hat, says Gary is always taking pictures. eventually you don't realise he is and I'm guessing that's when the magic happens.

Heidi invited 'the art teacher' and some of our friends to exhibit under 'family portraits' on the back wall last night .......more pics to follow.
