If you’re looking for an excuse to go to New Zealand/Aotearoa, (who isn’t?), the Auckland Festival of Photography will be running through August, with the bulk of it taking place in June and July. Their programme is chock full of exhibitions, talks, and other public projects. I’m happy to report that several of the exhibitions feature work made by artists using traditional means, including Bridget Reweti, Chris Corson-Scott, Conor Clarke, Arthur Ou, Stjohn Milgrew + Brendan Kitto, and there will be an exhibition entitled The Unknown on view at the Auckland War Memorial that includes examples of early photographic processes, such as daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, opaltypes, and tintypes. The Festival is a great opportunity to see firsthand what traditional photographers are up to in that part of the world.
