              This photobook was brewed from the conversations and arguments over our anxieties of mortality, technologically mired existence and degradation of the environment, exacerbated by our incessant international travels. The images and texts are extracted from such travels, drenched i...n other sordid human histories that somehow got us here.

              Pictures They Want to Make: Recent Auckland Photography (Hardback)

              By Corson-Scott, Chris; Hanfling, Edward; Foreword by Brownson, Ron

              It is not uncommon to hear the phrase 'take a picture' used in connection with photography, when really what photographers do is make pictures. Pictures They Want to Make presents a selection of works by twelve contemporary photographers, and examines the various ways in which th...e images are created, and the motivations that drive them. Each of the artists has a connection to the Auckland region; some of the photographs capture aspects of that region's culture and landscape, while others testify to the mobility and ambition of the artists - their familiarity with other places and people. The images reveal distinctive identities and characters, Auckland's place in the Pacific, the influence of history on the contemporary environment, the wonder of the commonplace, and much more. Most of all, they are personal statements; they are about how the artists see the world.

              Te Atatu Me: Photographs of an Urban New Zealand Village by John B. Turner (Hardback)

              Te Atatu Me: photographs of an urban New Zealand village is a personal portrait of West Auckland's Te Atatu Peninsula by John B. Turner, the noted New Zealand photographer, teacher and editor of PhotoForum. Recorded over a seven year period from 2005 to 2011, Turner's documentary... photographs celebrate the character and pulse of life in this unique and yet typical multicultural New Zealand urban community where he lived. Turner captures the sense of place and the often surprising pace of change, as new houses pop up, shops change hands, people come and go, and familiar sights are changed forever. Chosen to represent an extensive photographic essay of the recent past, Turner's pictures are accompanied by a perceptive historical essay, 'Peninsula Dreams,' by local illustrator and historian Grant Cole, editor of West of Eden, the journal of the West Auckland Historical Society. Altogether theirs is an affectionate portrait of Tat Norf with its rural beginnings, its development as a working class suburb in the 1950s and transformation into an increasingly middle class and multicultural community today. A rewarding place to live, Te Atatu Peninsula can be seen as a microcosm of New Zealand society now, challenged with the collective responsibility of preserving its special identity and best values under the pressures of Auckland's rapid growth and fundamental changes in New Zealand society.

              Publication launched on the occasion of Gavin Hipkins' exhibition Second Empire at Lopdell House Gallery, Titirangi (14th February-13th April 2008) during the completion of the McCahon residency at French Bay, Auckland (December 2007-February 2008) The fourth resident, photogr...apher Gavin Hipkins, arrived from Wellington at the end of November with his young family and spent Christmas in the bush. Gavin was the first residency artist with children to stay at the Otitori Road studio and house, making the early decision to build two bedrooms rather than one, a very good one. During his residency, Gavin worked on a series of superimposed images, printed onto canvas, exploring the notion of adventure and drama, as depicted in Empire and Commonwealth children's annuals from the 1950s, juxtaposed with present-day 'patch' imagery. His post-residency exhibition, titled Second Empire, was held in the large gallery at Lopdell House from 14 February - 13 April 2008 and was very successful. In February, Gavin gave an artist's talk in the gallery; a studio tour to a summer class; and held a 'master class' session for photography students.
