It was great to see such a large crowd in attendance last Sunday night (19th May 2013) for the exhibition opening  of Recent Auckland Photography, at Northart Gallery.  Below is a selection of photos from that evening.

Curated by Chris Corson-Scott and Edward Hanfling, the exhibition, (in association with the Auckland Festival of Photography) runs until 12 June 2013. Featured artists are: Mark Adams, Edith Amituanai, Fiona Amundsen, Harvey Benge, Bruce Connew, Chris Corson-Scott, Ngahuia Harrison, Derek Henderson, Ian Macdonald, Haruhiko Sameshima, Geoffrey H. Short and Talia Smith.

We hope many of you will join us at Northart on Saturday June 8 (from 3pm), for the talk by Ron Brownson with Edward Hanfling, followed by an informal “Meet the artists” session.

Also accompanying the exhibition, is the book  Pictures They Want to Make – Recent Auckland Photography by Chris Corson-Scott and Edward Hanfling, and published by PhotoForum. A very limited quantity of advance copies have been made available for viewing or purchase at Northart Gallery. The remaining stock  is due mid-June. Enquiries regarding this publication can be emailed to photoforumnz@gmail.com.
