Addenda 24th November 2016 - relating to a question posted in a comment
Amber - sorry, but for some software-related reason I was unable to approve your comment. "Hi ,id like to know the contact details for Mary Hutchinson as photos of me and my friends were published without knowing."
Thank you for commenting. Your concern is perfectly understandable, and it addresses a growing issue in photography.
I would like to say on Mary's behalf that her photography, like all street photography, forms an ongoing art project. Or call it journalism if you prefer - it's a bit of both. Although the books and prints are offered for sale, the revenue is well below the cost of the exercise and no one is making any money out of the photos included.
Mary is one of a number of Wellington photographers engaged in documenting the life of the city, including Hans Weston, Julian Ward, Peter Black, Gabrielle McKone, Ans Westra, Camus Wyatt, et al - each in their own way and for their own reasons, and all of whom have shown at Photospace Gallery at some time. It is a rich tradition in photography nationally and internationally, and if it becomes a restricted practise then a valuable visual record of human society and culture will cease progress.
Mary Hutchinson can be contacted via her website www.maryhutchinson.co
(This website address is also printed in her books.)
