Peter Ireland Review SEE HERE


A very personal view of the streets of our Capital City, Julian has given us here a careful selection from a large number of photographs he takes on his wanders with his trusted Leica. The patterns of light and shadow are not accidental but a strong reason for the juxtaposition and inclusion here. – Ans Westra

“Julian Ward’s photographs of Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city, uncover surprise after surprise, those off moments from the theatre of life when the actors are caught off guard. He notices things that we could see if we were there, but seldom do. A light mixture of banality and surreal absurdity.” John B. Turner, Senior Lecturer in Photography, Auckland University School of Fine Arts.


There is both a direct and subtle humour in these photographs which encourage the viewer to linger, and the immediacy of the image draws us in. We are in the flight path of the ‘flying lady’ in plate 33. The Cuba Mall gymnast flashes over our heads, so quickly and so far out of our normal frame of reference that her hands have escaped the frame.  See Katy Corner review here (scroll to the bottom of reviews)

JUST A WORD… BEFORE YOU LAUNCH (from the photograph on page 9, “…these images, indeed all good photographs, are above and beyond words. They sideswipe them, subvert them, render them useless, leave them dangling in the face of visual evidence.” Peter Turner, past editor of ‘Creative Camera’, London.


“…a beautifully crafted work of art.” Ans Westra, photographer.
