Sean Metelerkamp is widely lauded for his breakthrough music video ‘Zef’ for South African zeitgeist rap group Die Antwoord. This was followed by the highly acclaimed commercial for Diesel & Eden ‘Pantsula vs Puppets’. His accolades include Best Music Video at the D&AD Awards, and a YouTube PLAY Award with accompanying exhibition at New York’s Guggenheim Museum.
One of Sean’s recent projects involved voluntarily committing himself into a notorious rehabilitation centre in South Africa: Noupoort. There he was given an unprecedented level of access, interviewing and photographing over 30 addicts. On top of this Sean has published a photography book ‘Twenty Journey’, for which he travelled 24000 kilometers in seven months across South Africa – ‘questioning, engaging and exploring intersections of past, present and future’.
