Interview with Harry Culy of Bad News Books

leave a comment »

I had fun interviewing Wellington’s Harry Culy one of the enterprising co-founders of Wellington’s Bad News Books, an indie photobook publishing company right here in the capital.

The interview is on the PhotoForum website where we’re building a resource of information and critical writing about New Zealand photographers and photography.

It’s the last week to see The Long View at the Pah Homestead Gallery in Auckland.

Thanks to everyone who has visited the show, sent me nice messages about the work and bought the book.

There’s still a few copies available from my website or Unity Books, Wellington.

Recently I reviewed the Allan McDonald curated show, The Visibility Paradigm, on at Unitec, Auckland until 13 June, for the PhotoForum website.

Do check out the PhotoForum site where, with the aid of a CNZ grant, we’re building a resource dedicated to reviews and critical writing about New Zealand photography.
