Auckland Photography Festival: 4 - 27 of June, 2010

Auckland, New Zealand

Have you ever heard an expression "contemporary arts"? Do you know what does it stand for? Contemporary just means "art that has been and continues to be created during our lifetimes". Contemporary art can be defined variously as art produced at this present point in time or art produced since World War II. If you want to explore the modern form of arts, visit one of the most impressive New Zealand's cities - Auckland and discover what is all about. The Auckland Photography Festival will offer you 3 weeks-long entertaining events. So if you are going to be in New Zealand between the 4th and 27th of June, 2010, don't miss this modern festival of modern arts. Rediscover the world full of imagination.


Where the festival will be taking place? A city-wide contemporary art and cultural events will be held within Auckland's major galleries, project spaces, non-gallery venues and public sites. The programme includes a mix of emerging and established artists and comprises existing works and creation of new work. Photography is like a diary without words. The Festival is a cultural event and experience for many people. Photography is a cultural activity that captures the vast diversity of Auckland and its vibrant personality. Catch the moment and incorporate it into the frames, celebrates artistic excellence in photography!

Supportive, provoking, challenging and educative - its all about the festival. In the advent of the Auckland supercity, the Auckland Festival of Photography Trust this year observes the vanishing and transforming landscape, both physical and political. The Trust acknowledges the support of the seven city councils of the Auckland region over the last seven years. Beginning with just 10 exhibitions and events in Auckland central in 2004, the Festival has advanced to embrace the full panorama of Auckland, while upholding the integrity and identity of each province through the diverse and individual vision of each local exhibition.


What is special about this year festival? For the first time the festival is presenting a Talking Culture symposium in its programme showcasing the work of national and international environmental photographers. The symposium seeks to further local discourse on the the art of photography, the effects of industrialisation on the landscape and the global issue of climate change. Photography can be both overwhelming and fascinating. You have definitely see to believe!
