Photography Daniela Zondagh
Lifestyle, travel and food photographer Daniela Zondagh, based in Stellenbosch and Cape Town, was a top chef before switching to photography, which makes her the perfect photographer for our Country Chef feature Loving it Local (page 98). “But rest assured,” she says, “that when I’m not behind my lens, I’m paddling on the big blue or exploring outdoors.” After years spent in the kitchen, she loves nothing more than discovering and photographing new restaurants, places and people like she did in Stanford. “It combines my love for food, travel and photography. And I get to work with one of my food heroes, Mariana Esterhuizen.”
