A passionate Documentary photographer specialising in Cape Wild Fires has just released an incredible series honouring South African firefighters.

 

Justin Sullivan has been exploring photography in the greater Cape Town region for the past 2 years, broadening his expertise in Documentary Photography – specialising in Cape Wild Fires.

After completing his secondary schooling at the all-boys-boarding school Michaelhouse, Justin studied Development & Environmental Studies at the University of Stellenbosch. Justin completed majors in Geography & Environmental Studies, Public & Development Management, and a half-major in Sociology.

Sullivan now focusses his work on highlighting contemporary issues within South Africa, using photography to display insights into an unknown world. His documentary work from numerous Wild Fires around Cape Town has been highly recognised both locally and internationally, with various publications for print and online media.

As the new fire season has arrived in Cape Town, Sullivan is honouring South African firefighters with his incredible photo series.

“The City of Cape Town was faced yet again with Wildfire, as crews fought throughout the night to control a blaze that started above Deer Park. A few evacuations were carried as precautionary measures and mostly on a volunteer basis, with crews from NCC Environmental Services, SANParks – Table Mountain National Park , Volunteer Wildfire Services & Enviro Wildfire Services – Western Cape called to assist City Fire.”

“Good luck to all the aerial and ground crews out there today.”

Here are a few highlights from the photo series:
