Laurence Aberhart is increasingly recognised as New Zealand’s most eminent photographer. His signature images of landscapes, facades, monuments and interiors are entrenched in this country’s art history. Not only are his images steeped the history of the subjects that he portrays but of his chosen medium – a vintage view camera.
"Aberhart's images are bathed in the light of photographic history, as well as that of the world around. In his exquisite prints, photography reclaims a magic often lost in the digital age" Curator Gregory O'Brien
