About the artwork

Klaus Tiedge visited Namibia to photograph baobab trees. With its thick trunk crowned with branches deprived of leaves, the tree appears to be upside down. In the shadow of the palaver ?talking? tree? gatherings are organised or where the very young are taught. However, beyond its symbolic function, the baobab is revered for its usefulness. The soft wood of the trunk is water-soaked and the shade provided by the baobab brings freshness to these arid regions. In addition, the tree produces fruit, seeds, leaves, roots and shoots which can be consumed. It is thus easy to see why the baobab is called the ?tree of life.?

The artist

Born in Germany, Klaus Tiedge was an important figure in advertising photography for over 20 years. His work led him to travel the world – from India, to Japan, Brazil, and the United States – but it was South Africa that stole his heart and he decided to move there permanently. To practise his profession of photographer, in 2001 he settled in Cape Town, a vast multicultural city located at the tip of the country and that has been reinventing itself since the end of apartheid. Klaus Tiedge decided in 2008 to dedicate himself exclusively to art photography and focuses his work entirely on the African continent, which he appreciates for its rich cultural diversity and authenticity. In addition to his impressive images of wildlife, he has attracted attention for his sensitive series of portraits of the Himba and Zemba peoples in Namibia, but also through his collection of majestic baobabs. “My interest in Africa has not diminished over time. I feel as though I’m travelling now more than ever,” he says.  ... See more See less

All artworks

“I have always been motivated by curiosity and the desire to travel the world. This same curiosity led me to Africa. Whether it be to represent its people, animals, or landscapes, I find that it is good for my soul. It’s so diverse, authentic, and satisfying.”

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
