The photographs of Mary Macpherson – with a dash of poetry

Bent in Auckland

leave a comment »

Printing some Auckland images from Bent I was surprised at what was revealed by the large prints. The prints are not meters high as is current fashion, but large enough to start really seeing the details that stitch a photograph together – like the Sunshine Coach and Joyful furniture in one image – and to gain a presence that they don’t always have as A4 workprints. The image below of the Moreton Bay Fig and Coprosma was one that gained in stature as you actually felt the massive sweep of the tree and its sheltering of the seedling. Perhaps it’s related to Auckland city which often makes me felt like I’m in the land of giants.

The work will be shown in June at the Gus Fisher gallery alongside the PhotoForum show ‘History in the Taking’ 6 – 28 June – I’m really looking forward to the PhotoForum show and the accompanying publication.
