SA Photographer Deon TerBlanche took part in a 24-hour challenge and used the moment to highlight some incredible South African women.


Parys, Gauteng – Deon TerBlanche is a talented photographer, you may recognise him from a previous story we wrote about Yellowfish sculpture he installed on the Vaal river. In May of this year, he joined 4743 registered photographers in 824 cities across 100 countries to take part in a 24-hour challenge.

“24HourProject” connects photographers, photojournalist and visual storytellers from all over the world to document humanity and make a difference by raising awareness about global issues.

Participants share one photo per hour during twenty-four hours. On one single day, we get to see the world from a different point of view, humanity documented by local photographers.

The project reaches millions of individuals annually showcasing the human connection of images and real-life stories.”

Each year, there is a theme, and the 2019 theme was to feature inspiring women. Deon decided to feature 24 women from his neighbourhood who inspire him daily. Amongst the 24 women, he featured a famous singer, a woman who saved the Parys museum and so many more.

Take a look at some of the inspiring stories below; you can see them all on Deon’s Facebook page here.
