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.

Review of the Visibility Paradigm

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.

Big day today picking up the exhibition prints for my show ‘The Long View’ at the Pah Homestead, TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre, which opens at the end of May. The prints include some 1200 x 841mm numbers that are kind of thrilling – like your life has just been supersized.

Also looked at the first test proofs for the book at that will accompany the show, and received the draft essay from the lovely Greg O’Brien.

One of those days when everything arrives!
