ANZAC, a unique insight into the memorialisation of war by acclaimed photographer Laurence Aberhart, opens at Canterbury Museum on 7 April.

Laurence Aberhart has been photographing World War One memorials that include a single figure, in New Zealand and Australia for more than three decades. This special exhibition, developed by Dunedin Public Art Gallery as part of the World War One centenary commemorations is the stunning result of this work.

As with all his work, Aberhart shot the 60 photographs in the exhibition with an old-fashioned view camera using long exposures and available light.

Laurence Aberhart is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most important photographers. His work has been exhibited widely throughout New Zealand and internationally and is found in all major New Zealand public collections as well as many overseas. For close to 40 years, he has produced a body of work unrivalled in its intensity, richness and layers of cultural and photographic history.

ANZAC: Photographs by Laurence Aberhart 7 April to 24 July 2016 at Canterbury Museum. Developed and toured by the Dunedin Public Art Gallery with support from Creative New Zealand and WW1 Lotteries.
