24 Hours In Wellington Photo Exhib Opens Friday

24 Hours In Wellington Photo Exhibition To Open Tomorrow

Tomorrow at 6.45 pm, Hon Marian Hobbs, Minister responsible for Archives New Zealand and the National Library will open the 24 Hours in Wellington photo exhibition at the WestpacTrust St James theatre.

Ms Hobbs, who is also MP for Wellington Central, will view the 55 best images from the more than 10,000 photographs taken during the 24 Hours in Wellington photo shoot – the largest photo shoot ever to take place in the capital city. 24 Hours in Wellington was organised by the Wellington Photographic Society which ran a similar event in 1999.

Sixty-six photographers fanned out across the city from 4 pm on Friday 20 September to capture Wellingtonians at work and at play. Images captured range from the light-hearted to the more serious side of the capital city. Most importantly, the images present the essence of Wellington – its warmth, diversity and the people who make the city what it is. Participants, friends and family as well as representatives from the media and arts sector will be attending.

You or your representative are invited to attend the opening of the 24 Hours in Wellington exhibition between 6.30pm and 7.30 pm tomorrow evening at the WestpacTrust St James theatre.
