A photograph captures a split second in time and records it for history. Whether colour or black and white, digital or film, it is a moment which can’t be repeated or replicated.

Capture exhibits those precious one-off moments. The photographs range from those of historic record, like the wedding photograph of Richard Kelly, who along with his new wife Julie, would have had to stand still for up to fifteen minutes to ensure correct exposure of the glass plate, to the image of Davina Whitehouse who, photographer Neil Penman was given a very brief time frame to get just four shots of the aging actress.

This exhibition was made possible with the support of the Deane Endowment Fund, which supports the New Zealand Portrait Gallery Collection.
