Aberhart Starts Here

ISBN: 9781877375491

Authors: Lara Strongman, Laurence Aberhart    Publisher: Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu

One of Aotearoa New Zealand's most perceptive artists, Laurence Aberhart is a photographer who makes images of the vanishing past in an accelerating world. It was Christchurch where he developed his eye for the scenes that later brought his work to international attention. These early photographs of ordinary suburban houses, abandoned shops, masonic lodges and long-lost fast-food joints - some of them now iconic, others unseen or little know - depict a city and a way of life that no longer exists.
