Daylight Hours - photo exhibition & book by Hans Weston, Photospace Gallery, 11th July - 4th August. 2015
This is Hans Westons' second exhibition of colour street photographs at Photospace Gallery, following 'Unscene' in February/March 2014. 'Daylight Hours' is a more comprehensive exhibition, occupying the main gallery rooms.
Blurb for 'Daylight Hours' book:
" Daylight Hours, by New Zealand photographer Hans Weston, explores the life, light and colour of the urban environment. Fleeting moments like a couple’s hands that unknowingly imitate each other or a child admiring her reflection as she passes a large window, to a pair of brightly lit religious icons waiting expectantly on a car dashboard, are caught in his lens. Wellington is the backdrop for the majority of this collection, yet there are no location boundaries for Weston, who always takes a camera along for the ride. Daylight Hours is about noticing the world immediately around us, one that, for most, passes unnoticed in our busy, distracted lives."
Free event: Artist talk / Q&A with Hans Weston
