Rukus Photo Group & Friends
This diverse group of young, upcoming, and underground photographers are united by a shared passion for documenting the live music scenes and vibrant night life in Tamaki Makaurau. Initially brought together for the publication Ruckus, the ongoing practice of these photographers recording events in bars, community halls, purpose-built theatres and DIY holes-in-the-wall captures the visual essence of loud music in strange places. Photographers have selected works that resonate with them and their relationship with music. This is an opportunity to showcase work away from small-page and limited screen-based media, so expect some experimentation in formats that Instagram couldn’t handle!
