Covid-19 update: Waitohi - Johnsonville Library - is open again with alert level 2 restrictions in place The photos in the exhibition can be viewed online here - just click on each photo for enlargement. Information on the photographer John B. Turner is on this page.
We will be removing this photography exhibition in late October 202 to make way for a new exhibition.
Photography Aotearoa's first project is an exhibition of photographs at Waitohi - the new Johnsonville Library and Community Hub - that opened on Saturday 14th December, 2019. The exhibition, located in the main hallway upstairs, can be viewed during Waitohi's open hours until mid-March, 2020.
NOTE: when visiting the exhibition, please enjoy looking and do not touch the photographs. For best viewing quality the photographs are not glazed or laminated, so they are vulnerable and easily damaged.
There was a programme of activities around this exhibition:
a talk by Peter Ireland on the photography of John B. Turner,January 2020
a history talk on Johnsonville in the 1960s, January, 2020
a weekend workshop on documentary photography run by John Williams & James Gilberd, February-March, 2020. (Note: the workshop was cancelled as NZ went to Alert Level 3.)
We would like to thank the organisations that provided funding via grants, without which this exhibition would not have been possible:
Wellington City Council and Creative New Zealand
The Johnsonville Charitable Trust
The Trusts Community Foundation.
