Face(T)s Of McGregor

In March 2020, SY took a single portrait shot of a McGregor resident.  It was unplanned and captured the essence of the person.  On a whim, he shared it on the McGregor Community Notice Board, a private Facebook page.  This was the first Monday Portrait.  

Since then, SY has shared a portrait every Monday.  Nobody knows who it will be.   These are just some of them.

The exhibition 

This exhibition is of a selection of portraits – some never seen.

Sung Yee Tchao, Destination McGregor

The photographer

Sung-Yee Tchao was born in Paris and raised in the United States where he also went to university.  After leaving the US, he worked as a freelance photojournalist in Rome during which time his photographs were published in several international magazines.  SY, as the village knows him, has made South Africa – and McGregor – his home.

 SY is passionate about travelling, cooking, organic food gardening and, of course, photography.  

SY‘s fascination with people is reflected in this exhibition which consists of a selection of just forty of the many portraits he has taken since March 2020 and September 2021.  They reflect the many faces and facets of the village that is McGregor.
