New WWI-related exhibition at Photospace, 15th August

This exhibition centres around a small collection of hundred-year-old postcards, some relating to the WWI battle at Gallipoli, having been posted from Wellington to Turkey.

The postcard was used then much as a text massage is today – as a quick note. Heinz Sobiecki has done historical research into the origins and messages on the selected postcards and has built photographic stories around each. Copies of the message side of the postcards are presented, surrounded by Heinz’s related new photographic images.

Arriving in NZ from Germany in the early 1960s, Heinz Sobiecki quickly became one on NZ’s leading fashion and commercial photographers, working freelance and mainly for advertising agencies. He has since retired from professional photography and these days only takes and prints photographs for exhibitions. Each photographic print is unique – one-off – and is hand-made by Heinz in his darkroom using traditional silver-based materials and methods.

Please contact me for more information about this timely exhibition. Heinz lives in Wellington and is available to interview.

Exhibition: ‘Just a PC with love and kisses’ by Heinz Sobiecki, showing at Photospace Gallery, 15th August – 6th September.
