REMEMBERING

PIERRE CROCQUET.

In a life cut short, Pierre Crocquet did not settle for comfortable white-collar servitude. Instead, he embarked on a path that would leave an enduring legacy.

 

Pierre grew up in Klerksdorp, a mining town to the west of Johannesburg. He graduated from UCT and began working as a Chartered Accountant. He left South Africa for London in 1996 to work in merchant banking. Pierre thought it would be a dream job but in a letter home he wrote, “The money paid here is obscenely high but I hate the work.” He abandoned banking and went to study photography at the London College of Printing.

 

Pierre yearned for home and just after the millennium he returned to South Africa. From then on, his work focused on life in South Africa and on the African continent. Pierre spent a lot of time in Karatara from 2005 to 2007, a tiny settlement on the edge of the Knysna Forest. Originally established to accommodate forestry workers, the
population has dwindled as the industry has faded. Those who remain seem lost in time, part of a forgotten era.

 

Residents were initially wary and suspicious, and it took a while before they agreed to be photographed. His Knysna Forest portraits are compassionate, empathetic and compelling. The Karatara work was exhibited internationally and locally to much acclaim and a book containing the images, Enter/Exit, was published.


The silver gelatin prints on show are selected from the Knysna Forest series and were printed in the dark room by Master Printer, Dennis da Silva. In 2009 Pierre began working on what would be his final body of work, the award-
winning Pinky Promise. The work documented the personal stories of three pedophiles and five victims of childhood sexual abuse. The book Pinky Promise, which accompanied an exhibition of the same name held at the Johannesburg Art Gallery, was published in 2011.


The exhibition was critically acclaimed – the book was short listed for the Alan Paton award and David Goldblatt said of the work after Pierre’s death, “There can be few who engaged with pedophilia and child abuse so plainly, frankly and yet delicately as Crocquet. Seldom has any piece of work in photography and words been more frighteningly titled than Pinky Promise.”


The years of working on such an intense project left Pierre creatively burned out and in November 2012 he began a six month retreat at a remote Buddhist centre. He was meditating 14 hours a day, eating sparsely and in the final months had opted to remain silent. Two weeks before the end of the retreat Pierre began to exhibit signs of mental
distress and severe paranoia.


During the early morning of May 2nd 2013 he was killed in a hit-and-run at 2am at the age of 42.
