Glenn Jowitt achieved international prominence in the 1980s with his landmark publication Images Pacifiques/Pacific Images – a book of spectacular photographs of Pacific Island people. The photographs, printed by Megan Jenkinson at at the legendary Real Pictures Studio in Auckland, were first exhibited at Auckland City Art Gallery in 1983, and again in Paris in 1986. Doug Owens published

the book Images Pacifiques/Pacific Images in 1986, and launched it in Paris. Owens went on to purchase Real Pictures, which subsequently became Paradise Colour.

The James Wallace Arts Trust has recently acquired the original suite of Ektacolor prints which made up the Auckland and Paris exhibitions of Images Pacifiques. This classic suite of iconic images is featured alongside more recent images by the artist, who continues to document the changing circumstances and lifestyles of Pacific Island people, in Auckland and elsewhere in the Pacific. These images were printed by Megan Jenkinson and the legendary Real Pictures studio in His Majesty’s Arcade, Auckland, in the 1980s.

This exhibition part of the Auckland Festival of Photography, 29th May - 20th June 2014.
