Aart Verrips is a Durban-raised South African based filmmaker and photographer whose work follows a particular narrative around authenticity and connecting audiences emotionally with different subject matters. Verrips is always drawn to non-traditional faces in his photographic work, with the aim of showcasing a new standard of beauty and breathing in life to both his static and motion pictures. 


In a Kaleidoscope of jewel tones, Verrips' images have a crisp clean aesthetic, with a playful romanticism distilled by artful blurs, spontaneous choreography, and sculptural, printed backgrounds. 


Since changing careers from studying to be a pastry chef in France, Aart has worked on some of the biggest editorials in outlets that include but not limited to - TIME, Hunger InStyle, WWD, i-D, Gay Time, Dazed, ELLE, Marie Claire. He has also worked with fashion designers such as Thebe Magugu, Rich Mnisi, Lukhanyo Mdingi and major brands such as Stella McCartney, Canda Goose, Lavazza, Garnier, H&M, Apple, Adidas, Levi’s, Reebok, Samsung, BMW, Volvo and Nike.
