Reflecting back on the last quarter century, so much has seemingly changed, happened. Technologies emerged that fundamentally altered the way we do things, the methods by which we gather and disseminate information, and how we communicate. This last quarter century is also notable for the technological restructuring of photography by digital processes that now dominate the industry (Photoshop 1.0 was launched 19 February 1990). Less perceptible, but perhaps more important, are shifts in values attached to things and ideas, like the value of art, education, institutions, their ideologies.

This exhibition samples images from recent projects by photographers who have graduated over the past 25 years from New Zealand tertiary art education, and who majored in the specialist medium of photography. All photographs were made with analogue film technology and loosely fall into the field of extended ‘documentary’, with subjects carefully sought from specific environments of the photographers’ choosing.

The selection is not an attempt to suggest a collective attitude, or a stylistic manifesto. Nor is this an attempt to weave a larger narrative using the threads of individual pursuits. It was based on a question why such a seeming anachronism as film photography is still consistently used by a diverse range of graduates from different New Zealand art schools and over such a long period.
- Haruhiko Sameshima, October 2015
