Bright Light, Soft Launch

May 1, 2017 10:00 am - June 3, 2017 4:00 pm Malcolm Smith Gallery

As part of Auckland Festival of Photography

1 May to 3 June 2017

 

Bright Light, Soft Launch brings together emerging and established artists exploring representations of the figure through image making.

The artists featured take a poetic and nuanced approach to portrait photography, teasing out characters and personas and presenting their subjects in a kaleidoscope of ways. Some intend to blur and muddle typical perceptions; others mix stereotypes and narratives with nostalgia and tradition. All present a different way of contemplating how the figure can be captured through a lens.
