Voyage into the Heartland: Photographic Works from the Batten Collection from Aotea Utanganui Museum of South Taranaki
Curated by Cameron S. Curd
Monday 5th February – Sunday 4th March 2018
Voyage into the Heartland showcases the Batten Collection, a unique photographic anthology exposing original landscapes of the 1930s unseen before in New Zealand. These landscape images speak of a time where landscape photography was in its infancy and still forging its own identity. This collection focuses both on powerful landscapes and intimate portraits achieving a great aesthetic approach to their photography where every image engages us, allowing us to immerse ourselves in their world.
