Dear Hunter

BY REMY KROESE
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 09, 2014

The 'Dear Hunter' are architects, but they are different from any other architect office. They're not striving for buildings: they're after the experience of people like you and me, regarding our surroundings. Their philosophy is based on techniques of the hunt.

Hunting transforms all our senses and makes us extremely aware of our surroundings. Through various hunting techniques they don’t hunt deer, but the dearest thing to man: subjective values within the human environment, personals spatial experiences and perception. They gather this information to use it in the fields of architecture, design and urban planning.

Changing of the cables on Table Mountain

BY GARY HIRSON
@ VOL 48 ON MAY 08, 2018

Every year Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company shuts down for their annual maintenance. Every 4 years the cables that haul the cable cars up and down are changed. Every 6 years the cable cars are completely stripped and refurbished, and every 12 years the cable on which the cars run are re-tensioned.

Since 2005 Gary Hirson has been the only photographer commissioned to photograph this engineering feat. Mid-winter cape weather and tight timelines add to the stresses of completing the task at hand, which has to be completed on time. Local artisans and Swiss engineers work side-by-side to ensure safe passage for future tourists.
