Works by George Chance, who arrived in NZ in 1909, and contemporary works by Anton Maurer.

Working in this young country, what are photographers contemplating when picturing New Zealand landscape and the impact of man on the land? Often, it seems, other places. These suites of photographs and the narratives contained within, with their qualities of the bucolic and time stilled/stillness, reward contemplation. Aesthetically, when viewed together, the eight decade time-difference and our perceptions of the past may collapse.

Artist talk: Margreta Chance (granddaughter of George Chance) in conversation with Anton Maurer
Saturday 11 June, 12pm start.

Presented by McNamara Gallery Photography as part of the Auckland Festival of Photography Signature Programme.
