Here’s an update from Harvey Benge about the recent visit to Auckland, of Sandra S. Phillips (Senior Curator of Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art).
‘It was a great pleasure to last week share the photography trail with Sandra Phillips; here as guest of the Auckland Art Fair and keynote speaker plus teacher at AUT University’s annual Photography Workshop.
