Historical e-book on Humansdorp to be published
Photographer and videographer, Jonathan Phyllis, of Humansdorp, plans to write a historical e-book about his city, which will be published on various digital platforms.
Humansdorp-based photographer and filmmaker Jonathan Phyllis, who has always remained dedicated to the community, plans to write a historic e-book about his town, which will be published on various digital platforms.
As previously indicated by the kouga expressPhyllis is the founder of Humansdorp My Plek, a Facebook page that showcases her photographic work.
Since its creation two years ago, the Facebook page has accumulated at least 8,000 followers.
With the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on his photography business, Phyllis began taking photos of his community and surroundings to occupy himself, which he later posted to his Facebook page.
Apart from her photography business, Phyllis also created an online TV channel, Kwai Kat TV, on social media to uplift her community which was plagued by gangsterism and gang-related killings.
Now with over 5,000 photos on Humansdorp my Plek, he decided to create an e-book of some of the photos on his page.
Local photographer and videographer, Jonathan Phyllis, plans to publish a landmark e-book on Humansdorp, which will be made available on various digital platforms.
The e-book will also contain updates on people he has interviewed on Kwai Kat TV.
“I don’t want to give too much information about the book, but what I can say is that it will be worth it. Everyone at Humansdorp knows that when I think of something, I do it,” Phyllis said.
In the e-book, he also plans to include stories about families who have lost loved ones over the past two years, as part of the “Fallen Legends” chapter.
“The book is still in its early stages, but hopefully it will be ready by the end of June this year,” Phyllis said.
He said the e-book will be available online, but people will have to pay to download the book.
“I speak under correction, but this historic e-book will be a first for Humansdorp and can be used as a keepsake for years to come,” Phyllis said.
