Maggie Laubser’s Forever Light
Our feature on artist Maggie Laubser (Maggie Laubser’s Forever Light page 36) by Nick van der Leek, great-grandson of master artist Tinus de Jongh, is Nick’s twelfth in an ongoing series for COUNTRY LIFE on the great artists of South Africa. Nick is one of the country’s most prolific freelance photojournalists, and one who wears many hats. Alongside his passion for art and the landscape, he is a bestselling true-crime author of more than 40 books. In 2016 alone Nick published an astonishing 12 books, including two trilogies on the unsolved JonBenét Ramsey case, and in the same year was offered an international publishing contract for a fantasy epic.
