The Auckland Festival of Photography

The Auckland Festival of Photography

A PICTURE TELLS 1000 WORDS - Get ready to become fluent in the universal language of photography this June!

Focus your lens – adjust your eyepiece and snap into the world of some of New Zealand’s most celebrated photographers.

2005 sees the return of The Creative Exposure Auckland Festival of Photography. Building on last years overwhelming success the 2005 programme boasts increased participation from established galleries with both eminent and emerging photographers.

Renowned photographers including Ingrid Boberg, Marti Friedlander, Deborah Smith, Allan McDonald and Haruhiko Sameshima headline this high profile event. In addition to showcasing the work of these artists the Festival has a commitment to providing a strong presence in local communities.

‘The Festival offers something for both the fine arts devotee and the snap-happy weekend photographer’ says Creative Exposure organiser Julia Durkin. With exhibition venues ranging from The Avondale Bowling Club to The John Leech Gallery the Festival truly honours its commitment to diversity.

Reflecting the varied social textures of Auckland – the work presented in this Festival celebrates the many individual pockets of culture and identity present in New Zealand’s biggest city.

Not to be limited to the viewing of photography the Festival also offers an opportunity for active participation. THE AUCKLAND CITY PHOTO DAY on June 11 calls on all Aucklanders from students to camera clubs to cultural groups to get out and capture A Day in the Life of Auckland. The top images from this competition are presented in a public digital visual slide show at a central city location. This is a fun event open to all. Sponsored by Auckland City. FREEZEFRAME 18 Photographic Events, over 90 Photographers & 17 Venues

The Festival runs 4 – 26 June 2005 at various venues and galleries all over the city
