AUCK­LAND FES­TI­VAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY FAST-AP­PROACH­ING

New Zealand D-Photo - - INDUSTRY NEWS -

With the an­nounce­ment ear­lier this year that Janet Lilo is the An­nual Com­mis­sion re­cip­i­ent (see a full in­ter­view with Janet on page 22), the fes­ti­val is al­ready off to a very ex­cit­ing start. The pro­gramme for the June 1–24 event looks just as thrilling as ever, with a huge ar­ray of ex­hi­bi­tions and ex­pe­ri­ences for the pub­lic to be­come im­mersed in.

The an­nual Nikon Auck­land Photo Day on June 10 will see par­tic­i­pants given just 24 hours to cap­ture an image that re­flects Auck­land to them.

The event was ini­ti­ated in 2004, and af­ter a brief hia­tus in 2015, it was re­launched in 2016 — and here it is, back for 2017.

The fes­ti­val sees ex­hi­bi­tions that fall un­der the Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Photography um­brella show­cased all over Auck­land, and it’s nearly a full month of ex­treme photography im­mer­sion for those who get in­volved. If you’d like to ex­plore the full pro­grammes, head to pho­tog­ra­phyfes­ti­val.org.nz and start fill­ing in your di­ary.
