We are People
Meet the Founder
Founder of PhotoGanic. Circa 2009
Photographic Artist & Organic Fabric Specialist
From Cape Town, South Africa
Victoria, an organic aficionada, with a personal vision that “ones work is symbolic of ones existence” has been a great traveller from a young age and has passion for photographing all things natural. As a young photography student with a distinct admiration of naturally textural fabric Victoria began experimenting with her two favourite mediums…and what she discovered was a truly tactilely glorious blend…
PhotoGanic all began in 2009 with the Original Organic wall-hung canvas The Man From Amritsar
This distinctive creation was developed by Victoria through the intricate blend of organic fabric with a naturally photogenic subject, printed using eco-digital, water based inks.
