Kevin Capon

This is a small selection of works from a wider body of forty photographic portraits that Kevin Capon shot throughout 1984-85. The black and white portraits captured prominent figures within the arts at the time, a snapshot of New Zealand’s creative face of the time. The portraits are close up and personal, tightly framed on the face and intimate images of artists that have echoed through time such as Colin McCahon, Doris Lusk and Ralph Hotere. Portraits 1984-85 is a true snapshot of an era – allowing us to glimpse back while knowing the legacy of today.
