Few SA artists can productively be called raconteurs, as in a skilful teller of anecdotes. Most are simply too glum - solemn, too - when spinning yarns around their work.  If only more artists, in particular photographers, could be like Obie Oberholzer.” - Sean O’Toole, Financial Mail

Diesel and Dust offers visually stimulating images of Africa offer a multifaceted view of the continent in this recollection that is at once a history, a meditation, a travel memoir, and a tribute.

Diesel and Dust is a philosophy. The smell of diesel and dust early in the morning give me a feeling that I’m far away, and this book is about that – interesting people and places; about wonderings and passing’s through.” – Obie Oberholzer
