Thank you and Summary

This exhibition coincides with the “Auckland festival of Photography 2010” and on the first page of the festival booklet it shows the festival message. It is a quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson: “Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.” This sums up my interest in documentary photography, and it is very appropriate for this exhibition.

Thank you for visiting the exhibition. I hope you have found it enjoyable and insightful. You are welcome to leave any feedback. It will be much appreciated.
