Media Release

Diversity brings together photographers with diverse approaches – three Auckland photographers from Photoforum and six from The Developing Tank, which is a photographic discussion group made up of photographers from the Mahurangi region.

A Fine Line Gallery is located In Sharp Rd, halfway between Warkworth and Matakana (next door to Charlie's Gelato Garden).

Artist's Statement

Back Roads

Our rural environment is changing: subdivisions are springing up, villages are being redeveloped and roads are being sealed.

My main photographic project in recent years has been to capture the changing roads of my area around Leigh.

I am looking at the places we rush past en route to daily destinations, and documenting my surroundings as they change – for one day, many of these scenes will exist only in memory.
