Chris Corson-Scott’s images play with the dichotomy between history and the present, always extraordinarily illuminated. At age 31, Corson-Scott remains insistent on the use of analogue film and ‘old-fashioned’ 8×10 view-camera as critical to the aesthetic of his work, capturing places that carry quiet significance as historic sites, revealing a history all but invisible except to the keen observer/researcher bearing witness. Opening at Trish Clark Gallery on 14 June 2016 as a Signature Event in Auckland’s 2016 Festival of Photography, his exhibition “we passed the setting sun” presents intimate and compelling landscapes of time and place, personal and social history.

Exhibition opens: 5.30-7.30pm Tuesday 14 June 2016
