Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision presents a documentary profile of Peter Peryer - 30 mins. 

Screening on TV-Freeview CH200, the film discusses Peryer’s then current project in which he attempts to get a portrait of a bull, and his new work with Macano. Peryer describes his work as autobiographical: “My photographs are self-portraits. The photographs are somehow related to my past. I don’t know why or how.” 

Peryer shows us the process involved in taking photographs – from their initial conception to sorting through the proofs. He also talks about the evolution of his work from moody and angst-ridden in the 1970s to clinical and constructivist in the 1980s. Director Greg Stitt; Producer Trevor Haysom and; Camera Leon Narbey.

Ellen Melville Centre will host a screening from 2pm on Mon 1 June

Ka whakapuaki e Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision i tētahi pakipūmeka e hāngai pū ana ki a Peter Peryer – e 30 mineti te roa.

Ka whakaaturia ki te pouaka whakaata o Freeview CH200. He kiriata tēnei e whakamahuki ana i tana kaupapa hopu whakaahua o tētahi pūru, me tōna mahi hou ki te taha o Macano. Ko tā Peryer, ko āna mahi he haurongo, arā, nāna anō i tuhi: “Ko aku whakaahua he whakaahua kiriaro. He hononga tō ēnei whakaahua ki taku onamata. Kāhore ahau i te mōhio he aha taua hononga, kāore hoki ahau i te mōhio ka pēhea taua hono”.
