Akatarawa - photographs by Dan Anbury, Photospace Gallery, 17 November 2018 to 26 January 2019.
This is Dan Anbury's first solo exhibition. The photographs were taken on the Akatarawa Road over a period of years, and the project is ongoing. The road winds through the bush-clad hills of the Akatarawa Valley, running from Upper Hutt to Waikanae.
The only other exhibited photograph by Dan Anbury appeared as a finalist in the 2018 Parkin Drawing Prize exhibition at The Academy Galleries, Queens Wharf, Wellington, earlier this year. The photograph 'Mattress', (below) was also taken on the Akatarawa Road.
