image, immediacy, impact

It’s been a few months now, but the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit near Culverden in November 2016 is still something many Kiwis think about regularly. I remember waking up to the news that the giant earthquake had hit and just imagining the devastation that would have been caused. That was just after midnight, when the country was covered in darkness. But, a few measly hours later, our televisions, social-media feeds, and even newspapers were flooded with images of the result of the shake. We saw footage of those who were stuck amid it and those who were working to get everything stable for people to leave Kaikoura. It’s not until those images reach you that you really appreciate the gravity of the situation. The fact that you didn’t have to wait long…

Tui, kereru, and kowhai, oh my! After reading our Ten Great Spots for Bird Photography article, Barbara Anderson got in touch to tell us about one of her favourite bird-watching spots and to share a few photographs she has captured recently of some of New Zealand’s beautiful bird life. “One of my favourite spots for bird photography is not far from where we live, Maungakawa Hill, Cambridge. All of these photos, with the exception of the mother bellbird feeding her chick, were taken at Maungakawa Hill. I love the challenge of photographing birds, as they move about so much, unless they are a…

post-2000 cindy sherman showcased in wellington

New York–based photographer Cindy Sherman has created beautiful works over the past 40 years that have confronted stereotypes and cultural clichés that we encounter in society on a daily basis. And now’s your chance to explore her work in her first New Zealand solo exhibition in more than 25 years, which is being shown at City Gallery Wellington until March 19. Aaron Lister, City Gallery Wellington curator, said, “Visitors will get a rich sense of everything Sherman has made since 2000. She works in discrete and bounded series — this exhibition samples generously from every series from the last 16 years. We see Sherman reappearing as a model or a character in her photographs, and also her embrace of digital photography to open new possibilities or worlds for these characters to…

whangarei’s camera obscura hits the target

The Camera Obscura — Whangarei team has done it! The team’s crowdfunding efforts to raise $25K came to fruition on November 23. The trio behind the camera obscura are photographer Diane Stoppard, sculptor Trish Clarke, and architect Felicity Christian, and their concept is an eight-metre interactive steel sculpture reflecting Whangarei’s waka history, which will house a camera obscura. The camera obscura will be situated looking towards Whangarei’s Te Matau a Pohe Bascule Bridge and will use CCTV technology to connect the camera obscura experience to the worldwide web, so that a global audience can also experience the view. If the Pledge Me fundraiser had not met its target, the team wouldn’t have been able to have kept any of the money, but now the $25K is secure, and any further money…
