Obie Oberholzer’s Karoo

“I don’t like cities,” says Obie Oberholzer. “They’re a conglomeration of falseness. I like the outback, where you can sit and watch and feel.  You find the most interesting things in vastness.”

For his latest project, the renowned South African photographer has been documenting life in the Karoo, a parched expanse of baked red earth that fills the centre-west of his homeland. In today’s Telegraph Travel, he introduces the result, Karoo: Long Time Passing. For more on his work, see his own site.
