As part of the 2014 Auckland Writers Festival, Harvey Benge will be presenting a photography workshop on Friday 16 May from 2-3.30pm, in the Goodman Fielder Room, Level 4, of the Aotea Centre.
STORIES WITH PICTURES: HARVEY BENGE
‘With more than 380 billion photographs taken each year, each telling a story, almost everybody these day considers themselves a photographer. But while seemingly easy, taking a great photograph is anything but. Art-based photographer Harvey Benge published his first photobook in 1993; twenty years on with more than 40 publications to his credit, Benge can spot a great picture from a dog. In this workshop he explains the distinction.’ Auckland Writers Festival website.

You are warmly invited to attend the opening of Onslow College Sports Day 1967 – a series of photos taken on “two hand-me-down cameras and eight rolls of film”, and developed by the two then 15 year old schoolboy photographers using a wardrobe as a darkroom. The negatives survived, and Graham Wilton & Michael Bajko have scanned them and printed the images digitally. We hope you’ll agree they have captured a slice of history with a good dose of charm.
The exhibition runs until 28th April.
More info: http://www.photospacegallery.
There will also be a show of photographs selected from the gallery’s stockroom.
Graham, Michael and the Photospace crew look forward to seeing you at the opening on Friday 4th April, between 5pm and 7pm.

Haruhiko Sameshima, a full time artist and freelance photographer based in Auckland, has exhibited widely in solo and group shows throughout New Zealand since 1982. His photographic practice focuses on the idea of tourism and tourist sites as expressions of identity where the packaging of environment – such as architecture, museum displays, man-made landscapes and advertising billboards – are a principal focus.
