“I hope you travel well,
 I hope you ride the wave
 From the center.
 And the light says:
 You know the start
 But not the end.
 All our ends are different.”

“Kim Geldenhuys was approached to shoot with TBWA Hunt Lascaris for The Okavango Diamond Company. The script: ‘The Light at the Start of Everything’ is a visual poem written by Iain Thomas for The Okavango Blue, the remarkably rare and largest Deep Blue diamond that has ever gone to market. Kim was tasked with a brief to explore the stone’s origin and the magical, unspoilt land of Botswana to which it belongs.

To reflect on the transient nature of our human lives and remind us that the light inside the diamond is the same light that resides in us. Kim and a small team headed to Botswana to find ways to film its natural beauty in a way not seen before. The shoot saw a travel to the Makgadigadi Pans and the inaccessible but unique Khubu Island and beyond. A partnership with Wicked Pixels seamlessly integrated the post production elements. An accompanying sound track is scored by Nic van Reenen of Field Audio.”

“There are places in the world where stars are the only source of light. Their singularity is breathtaking, inclines to reflection and becomes the root of inspiration. Places like that are usually unspoiled, natural and intact. These are the places where humans live in symbiosis with nature.

Namibia is one of the few places on Earth with the lowest light pollution. There are national parks there where the light pollution is reduced to zero. That’s why it has become a hotspot for astronomy photographers like myself.

“Undisturbed Places” is a project made in Namibia and Botswana during Namib & Kalahari Desert Astroexpedition, organized by Safra-Go. Taking part in a month-long journey, I was able to collect 2TB of timelapse footage. What you are about to watch is a selection of the most beautiful locations I was able to film.”
