With a nod to the late Robin Morrison's first book, 'Images of a House', Wellington large-format photographer Andrew Ross explores the ambience and history of an older, private house in Masterton, a place with personal connections for him.

Ross's black and white photographs have been widely collected by institutions and private art collectors, and he has exhibited at least annually at Photospace Gallery since early 1999, where a large collection of his work is held.

Whanganui artist Su Hendeles presents her recent work in the vintage medium of Ambrotype photography, 'Thinking of you'.

This exhibition takes a whimsical look at the changing role of the portrait from the dawn of photography to the present day, portrayed through the nineteenth century medium of ambrotype.

Thinking of you comprises three parts:
- Extended Family
post-mortem shadow portraits of some small creatures that once shared our house, gleaned from the cobwebs in the corners of the windows.
- Beloved
a collection of miniatures of questionable emotional value.
- Remember Me
10 x cased ambrotypes referencing the face as the new gatekeeper of our digital devices.
Thinking of you is showing in Room 3 of Photospace Gallery from 2nd December 2017 to 27th January, 2018.
'For the ancestors of the next millennials.'

Please note: I've only listed dates up to 22nd December. The gallery will be closed for a few days over Christmas, and the same for New Year.

Between the two holidays, and into January, the gallery will be open by appointment. Also, because we're due for some earthquake strengthening work, viewing the Andrew Ross exhibition may be affected in January.

Please check the gallery website for updated information on opening hours for 2018.
