SEAN CALITZ

House and Leisure (South Africa) - - Contributor -

Hav­ing grown up on a farm just out­side Dur­ban, Sean stud­ied pho­tog­ra­phy in his home­town and then as­sisted two South African greats in Cape Town, where, he says, ‘I did my real learn­ing.’ Cur­rently di­vid­ing his time be­tween London and Cape Town, Sean was in town re­cently and shot our food story for this is­sue, ‘A Vis­ual Feast’ (page 86). What’s your favourite art form? Pho­tog­ra­phy, es­pe­cially on record cov­ers. Who are some of your favourite South African artists? Pi­eter Hugo and David Gold­blatt. Dream gal­leries or mu­se­ums around the world you’d like to visit? The Frida Kahlo Mu­seum (the Blue House) in Mex­ico City and The Peggy Guggen­heim Col­lec­tion in Venice would be a good start. If money were no ob­ject, what work of art would you treat your­self to? Any­thing by Frida Kahlo or a signed cover of Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love. What three words best de­scribe your home? Neat, un­clut­tered, peace­ful.
