-photographing stories through detail
Christchurch Women's Photography Collective

Resolutions photography exhibition explores themes such as colour, mood, culture, nostalgia, and beauty from the perspectives of six photographers. These complex notions are brought into focus, are resolved, with a quiet determination through the lens. The techniques and motivation of the photographers are individual, however they are connected through storytelling and the shared experiences of photography. 

Some of the group have created work especially for the exhibition, while others are showing work curated over the ‘Covid Years’. Resolutions opens from 6pm Friday, 25 February and runs until Thursday, 24 March, all welcome to attend the opening.
