Works by George Chance who arrived in New Zealand in 1909, and contemporary works by Anton Maurer - Saturday 11 June to Wednesday 29 June 2016.

Working in this young country what are photographers contemplating when picturing New Zealand landscape and the impact of man on the land; often it seems other places.

These suites of photographs and the narratives contained within, their qualities of the bucolic and time stilled/stillness, reward contemplation. Aesthetically, when viewed together, the eight decade time-shift and our perceptions of the past, may collapse.

Artist talk: Contemplating Place - Margreta Chance in conversation with Anton Maurer, Saturday 11 June, 12pm start.

An exhibition from McNamara Gallery Photography.
