Early Taranaki

I'm hard at work scanning early work for my exhibition 'Gala Days' at Puke Ariki, New Plymouth in June.  This photograph was made in Waitara in the late 80s with my old Rolleiflex.  I have thousands of negatives and it's a major job making the selection.  I'll put up some new finds on this blog and others can be seen in the Archives links (Gala Days).

Aro Valley

The Aro Valley fair is always a mess of humanity, and hasn't changed since I first went there in the early 1970s.  These photographs are brand new but could have been taken 40 years ago.  One of the  delights of Wellington.

Featherston 2

Driving through Featherston yesterday I saw this house and had to make a photograph.  There is something I can't explain which appeals to me.  It's probably the repeating garage roofs and the soft light.  But also it's a signature of NZ housing on the classic 1/4 acre.  I really like the picture.

Blenheim

Travelling home from Christchurch I diverted to the salt plains near Blenheim and took this photograph.  Like the Kawerau post below (Feb 25th) I enjoy the challenge of making industrial pictures from the road.

Newtown 2

These Newtown photographs were made at the street fair last Sunday.  The man above reminds me of the Greek men I photographed in the 1970s.  There are similarities in the hard light and ageless clothes.  Sunday was a good day for picking out individuals in the street and making studies of them, and I like the way the light crosses his jacket.
