PIC­TURE PEFECT

On the sym­me­try of na­ture.

North & South - - In This Issue -

Na­ture’s sym­me­try on show at the Auck­land Art Fair.

Photographer Casey Moore was three when his fam­ily packed up and moved to Europe, but New Zealand has re­mained a key in­flu­ence on his work – from ex­plor­ing the fault lines in Christchurch post- earth­quake to a col­lec­tion in­spired by his great-grand­fa­ther, a renowned phi­lat­e­list who de­signed the kiwi penny stamp in 1936.

Moore shot his Fiord­land Botan­i­cals images, in­clud­ing the crown fern pic­tured be­low, in situ on a trip to Dusky Sound. “That was a proper ex­pe­di­tion, trav­el­ling with my large-for­mat cam­era by he­li­copter and boat,” he says. “What I found there in Fiord­land was a se­ries of botan­i­cals re­flect­ing a univer­sal sym­me­try.”

The pho­to­graphs will be on show at the Auck­land Art Fair (The Cloud on Queens Wharf, May 23-27), along­side work from 40 local and in­ter­na­tional gal­leries from as far afield as Jakarta, Tokyo, San­ti­ago and New York.
