F4 Artist Collective and Shaun Higgins, Curator Pictorial have collaborated in selecting historical portrait photographs of unknown provenance from the collection.These photographs will be displayed in the Archive Library of The Auckland War Memorial Museum, alongside photographs that have been augmented by F4. Focusing on the diverse physicality of the medium in its earlier periods (daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, opaltypes, tintypes), these two bodies of photographs, original and manipulated, will work in conversation with one another. Taking the muteness of The Unknown, exploring its contours, creating relationships with the faces of the past.

Curator Shaun Higgins and artists F4 (Marcus Williams and Susan Jowsey) will discuss the works on display in an informal floor talk at 1pm on Saturday 11 June in the Archive Library of The Auckland War Memorial Museum
