Mary McPher­son — The Long View Pah Home­stead,

TSB Bank Wal­lace Arts Cen­tre

New Zealand D-Photo - - WHAT’S ON | 2018 AUCKLAND FESTIVAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY -

The Long View harks back to the 19th cen­tury when artists such as Al­fred Sharpe and John Kinder were mak­ing im­ages of Auck­land as a city-in-progress. One and a half cen­turies later, the still-young city con­tin­ues to make and re­make it­self — and it is this process which Macpher­son’s pho­to­graphs in­habit. A vi­sion emerges that is at once rest­less, un­re­solved and para­dox­i­cal, yet some­how ca­pa­ble of mo­ments of tran­scen­dence.
