Lauren Beukes: Three Portraits

Lauren Beukes

I had the privilege of chatting to Lauren Beukes about her second novel, Zoo City, in Johannesburg this week – and, ahead of our chat, I was able to make a few portraits of the author.

One of them, as you’ll see if you look closely, maintains a degree of fidelity to the idea of alternate realities that Beukes has opened our eyes to over the past few years.

I hope you enjoy them.

    As Louis said on Twitter, "The man's a magician", although even Victor's magic can't hide the bags under my eyes. They're big enough to smuggle aircraft carriers! That's the last time I stay the night with friends with a small baby.

    It's a fabulous pic. If you don't have bags under your eyes, you're not working hard enough!
