Ex­plore the globe with Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy

The Photographer's Mail - - News -

The Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy is in full swing now, with a huge va­ri­ety of pop-up ex­hi­bi­tions tak­ing over the ma­jor­ity of Auck­land’s gal­leries. From Matakana to Pa­pakura, there’s some­thing to see no mat­ter where you’re sit­u­ated.

Ex­hibitors come from as far afield as the US, In­dia, Singapore, China, and Australia, and in­clude a huge num­ber of lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phers, while works are ex­hib­ited in ma­jor gal­leries, project spa­ces, non-gallery venues, and at var­i­ous public sites. There’s also a mix of well-es­tab­lished pho­tog­ra­phers and emerg­ing artists fea­tur­ing their cre­ations, which al­ways makes for a great level of di­ver­sity.

Through­out the fes­ti­val, there has been a se­ries of in­spir­ing pre­sen­ta­tions from renowned pho­tog­ra­phers and pro­fes­sion­als in the in­dus­try. While many of these Talk­ing Cul­ture pre­sen­ta­tions have been and gone, there is still one talk left: Fiona Pard­ing­ton and Neil Pard­ing­ton will dis­cuss Fiona’s ex­hi­bi­tion A Beau­ti­ful Hes­i­ta­tion on June 19 at the Auck­land Art Gallery Au­di­to­rium at 1pm.

To find out more about the ex­hi­bi­tions and events lead­ing up to the close of the fes­ti­val on June 24, visit pho­tog­ra­phyfes­ti­val.org.nz.
