Wynyard Quarter Exhibition (part 2)

02/09/2013

In my post of 2 August 2013, I talked about the exhibition at and about the Wynyard Quarter. The show has now closed, and I am happy to post some images of the work inside the blue container.

A Second Wind

Photos from my book “A Second Wind”, about the coal fired steam tug “The Daldy”, which was also exhibited.

Wynyard Quarter

The two photos on the left were taken by me in the fast-changing Wynyard Quarter. For the first one I was standing on top of one of the old silos and I spotted a young girl holding balloons and wearing a helmet, which seemed quite peculiar. The one next to it is my impression of “The Cloud”, a multi-purpose event venue built in 2011. The two photos on the right were taken by Ruth Ames also in the Wynyard Quarter.

These three images are also work by Ruth Ames, who documented the changes happening in Daldy Street.

“Cynthia” is a series by Sonya Roussina, which shows Cynthia, who is a regular visitor to the Wynyard Quarter piano.

Wynyard Quarter Exhibition

02/08/2013

Entering and participating in the Waterfront Auckland Photography competition has resulted in a chance to exhibit my work alongside two other participants: Ruth Ames and Sonya Roussina. The Wynyard Quarter is a fast developing area on the Auckland Waterfront and with my interest in documentary photography and combining the present with the past, this is a perfect area for a project. With the help of a very kind man’s historical photographs I created a book called: A Second Wind. It features images of the steam tug “William C. Daldy” (The Daldy in short). The Daldy retired in 1977 after 41 years of service as one of the last coal fired tugs in the world. Now The Daldy operates as a working museum, seeĀ The Daldy for more information. Apart from documentary images, we also entered a few standalone images.

The official opening is today and the show is on until 19 August 2013. It was an interesting process setting it all up in a container! For more info please click on: Waterfront News. More images to follow soon.
