A pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion cur­rently dis­played at Raglan Li­brary is giv­ing renowned pho­tog­ra­pher Mark Hamil­ton and the Ran­gatahi (youth) from around Raglan an op­por­tu­nity to bring their work in front of their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The Ran­gatahi photo ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures a key piece of work from Mark Hamil­ton and other photography by young peo­ple in the area. The idea for the ex­hi­bi­tion came about af­ter lo­cal photography tu­tor Maryanne Tuao held a youth photography work­shop in De­cem­ber last year. She asked Raglan Li­brary if they’d like to ex­hibit the works and li­brary staff were happy to do so.

“Raglan is a very cre­ative com­mu­nity,” says Michael Ed­monds, Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil’s cus­tomer de­liv­ery team leader— Raglan.

“This ex­hi­bi­tion re­flects that and also fits in with Coun­cil’s val­ues around youth en­gage­ment and sup­port­ing cre­ative ex­pres­sion in a va­ri­ety of forms.”

The Ran­gatahi photo ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play at Raglan Li­brary over the next few weeks. The li­brary will also have items on dis­play from the Coun­cil’s trav­el­ling
