Photographer, South Africa
Blomkamp was born in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa, and immigrated to Canada in 1997. She earned a BA in English Literature from the University of British Columbia, where she was president of the photography society. She is a self-taught photographer who worked in the film industry as a stills photographer from 2010-2014 on major productions in North America. Her urge to pursue more traditional forms of fine art photography led her to the booming photography scene in London in 2014. She studied Art History at Sotheby’s and embarked on her Shroud series.
Blomkamp was a successful entrant into the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition 2016 in London where Shroud was put on display. The prestigious show is the largest open competition in existence, and showcases the best of contemporary art from all over the world. Blomkamp now resides in Cape Town and is currently launching a photography and art magazine.
