Harvey Benge Auckland Writers Festival


‘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.

Onslow College Sports Day 1967 exhibition

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:—graham-wilton–michael-bajko.html

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.
