Abstract or Summary

An exhibition of 14 contemporary New Zealand photographers: Gary Blackman, Joyce Campbell, Conor Clarke, John Collie, Bruce Connew, David Cook, Karen Crisp, Marina Farrer Gilmour, Darren Glass, Robyn Hoonhout, John Miller, Davina Monds, Andrew Ross, Julian Ward. "This issue of PhotoForum represents a snapshot of recent work by a mix of established and new photographic practitioners from around New Zealand. It also documents the exhibtion, On Show, PhotoForum 2008 organised by PhotoForum for the Bath Street Gallery, Parnell, as part of the Auckland Festival of Photography, shown from 12 June to 5 July 2008. Rather than nominate a particular theme, the selection panel, drawn from PhtoForum's committee, and consisting of Mark Adams, Julie Downie, Tim Mackrell, Garry Sturgess and John B. Turner, put forward the names of more than 80 candidates to represent a diversity of approaches and experience, from which the final selection of 14 was reached by consensus... Irrespective of content, technology has always affected the way photographs look and how they are received. This is one obvious thread in this selection, which includes pinhole contact prints from scanned colour negatives or tranparencies and b&w negatives, digital duratrans, and classic analogue b&w contact prints. In effect, this collection bridges the beginnings of photography in the early 19th Century through to recent developments in the digital era." extract from John B. Turner's introduction to the exhibition catalogue.
