This is a small selection of works from a wider body of forty photographic portraits that Kevin Capon shot throughout 1984–85. The black and white portraits captured prominent figures within the arts at the time, a snapshot of New Zealand’s creative face of the time. The portraits are close-up and personal, tightly framed on the face and intimate images of artists that have echoed through time, such as Colin McCahon, Doris Lusk and Ralph Hotere. ‘Portraits 1984–85’ is a true snapshot of an era – allowing us to glimpse back while knowing the legacy of today.
