Outdoor, online and in venue exhibitions that explore the theme of disruption are at the heart of this year’s Auckland Festival of Photography, with exhibitions online, in venues and outdoors. This year’s festival runs June 2-12 but several outdoor and online exhibitions are available beyond that, including several ‘activation’ events in May to coincide with Aotearoa Music Month.
AFP remains agile in delivering a festival in the current environment, with content that reflects social and global dynamics, says AFP founder Julia Durkin. “Disruption across the cultural sector, and especially live performances, with Covid 19, have impacted the photographers who preserve, document and archive these musical gigs and help us enjoy them long after the encores have finished. Music and photography have been an integral part of the scene. We are pleased to share new Image Auckland [tamaki makaurau] exhibitions through May alongside the 2022 Music Photo Award. ”
