New Zealand artist Laurence Aberhart has been making photographs since the 70s. He uses a turn of the century Korona 10x8" view camera which produces negatives at the same size as the final printed images. Aberhart photographs architectural facades - church halls, masonic lodges, picture theatres and suburban homes - then takes us behind these facades to their still and empty interiors. This body of work has been selected by Daniel Palmer for exhibition in the new gallery spaces of the CCP. The selection reveals some of the works Aberhart has made in Australia and New Zealand over the last few decades. Several of the 'Last Light' series are included, where Aberhart photographs land and sea subjects in the dwindling light at the end of the day.
