Welcome To Art Bistro
 
What once was a dream became a reality when the co-owner of Art Bistro in Hartbeespoort, once, on
a hot summer night took a photo of her friend whilst Eskom played their part.
 
Heidi Barnard co-owner and the photographer of the accompanying photo
realised the next day that the specific photo was the answer to a dream that she had
for many years. It represents  an answer that also comes with bigger inspiration when another
accomplished photographer explained to her that the  method used by  her to take the specific
photo is basically impossible and that the photo is actually an art  piece.
 
My friends, his family, we all were together on a specific night. Just before the photo was taken, my
friend came out of the swimming pool.  There were no electricity and as he was sitting at our huge
dining table, with the standard candle stand, lit with the candles, I then decided to experiment
with my advanced camera that I have recently got.
 
I never had regarded myself as professional but that evening, with the soft lights of the candle on his face,
I just had to take the photo.
