Please Do Not Feed …

Please Do Not Feed …

Quirky scenes of English zoo culture feature at the Southern Lakes Festival of Colour and WildSouth International Film Festival for one of New Zealand’s most exciting, new photographic talents.

Please Do Not Feed… by Andy Morley-Hall, is a black and white photographic exhibition combining humour with the decisive moment. Morley-Hall made around twenty-five visits to photograph the public’s interaction (or not) with the animals at the zoos in England. His interest lies in photographing situations that momentarily reveal themselves amidst the mundane hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Since completing a post-graduate diploma in photojournalism at the London College of Printing in 2000, Andy’s work has been sought after for both exhibitions and publications in Europe, North America and New Zealand.

As a street photographer, with influences including the work of Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand and Tony Ray-Jones, Andy’s interest lies in photographing situations that momentarily reveal themselves amidst the mundane hustle and bustle of everyday life. The more mundane the better. “I like to incorporate a level of ambiguity or intrigue that doesn't give the viewer all the answers.” says Morley-Hall.

Images from this exhibition feature in Andy’s book ‘Please Do Not Feed’, which was published in London 2003. It is distributed throughout Europe and Australasia, and is available in New Zealand through Dymocks Booksellers.

The exhibition will run at Lake Wanaka’s Cinema Paradiso from 25 April – 1 May. For further information on the Festival of Colour, visit
