Born in Johannesburg South Africa, but now based in Cape Town, Stephanie Blomkamp creates beautiful, surreal images that are striking and cinematic yet elegant and feminine. She is the founder of Oath, a magazine celebrating photographers and championing emerging voices from Africa and she also spends her time mentoring other photographers. 

Stephanie is a firm believer that film photography shows a dedication to the craft that you don’t get with digital. Most of her work is shot on her beloved Hasselblad 503CXI which was once sadly stolen from her, leaving her heartbroken. The story does have a happy ending however as it miraculously made its way back into her life.
