Last week my photography exhibition Walking in Wynyard came down. It was a great success with large numbers of visitors, lots of fantastic feedback and several sales.
The exhibition was at the ASB Waterfront Theatre, Wynyard Quarter, Auckland NZ.
Exhibition Dates: 4 – 20 August 2017
This exhibition was created at the invitation of Panuku Development Auckland. It formed a part of the Wynyard Quarter 6th birthday celebrations on 5 August 2017, and continued for 2 weeks after.
As the client representative for Auckland Theatre Company during the building and commissioning of the new ASB Waterfront Theatre in Wynyard Quarter (2014 – 2017), I spent a lot of time in the Wynyard precinct at odd hours of the day and night.
The images in this exhibition are selected from hundreds of photographs I took in and around the Wynyard Quarter during those years, capturing the changing moods and atmosphere of the precinct.
The exhibition offers a unique perspective on the Wynyard precinct. By providing new views of familiar subjects, the images challenge the viewer to see the area with fresh eyes – to look up, and into corners, and down alleys.
In the words of French novelist Marcel Proust (1871-1922):
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Here are the images from the exhibition.
