For the last 5 years Limephoto and Emil von Maltitz have been intimately involved with building the portfolio of work for the Glass and a Aluminium company, Aluview. Based in Johannesburg, Aluview have been in the glass and aluminium industry for over 25 years and have had a strong influence on the industry itself in the country.
Recognising the power of great imagery, Aluview approached Limephoto to create images of their signature projects throughout South Africa. The goal was to put together a glossy brochure that would highlight the innovative use of glass and aluminium in the projects that Aluview had completed over the years. To this end, Emil travelled to Johanneshurg, Pretoria, the Wild Coast, Cape Town, George, Knysna and Sun City to photograph some of the completed projects. These included Cape Town's Westin Hotel and the One and Only, Kynsna's Turbine Hotel, George's Hyatt, various hotels in Johannesburg and of course the inimitable Sun City near Rustenburg.
Along with the photography, Limephoto was tasked with the brochure, layout, overview of the printing and large swathes of the copy in the actual brochure as well. Following on from this Limephoto took an active role in the website design, text and included images. The relationship with Aluview has grown such that Limephoto is now tasked to cover future completed projects as well. The brochure is now into it's second printing with amendments. The design of the brochure is such that inserts can be readily added as projects complete in future.
