Exhibition Opening: Andrew Ross - ‘Where Music is Made’


The exhibition opening will now be on Friday 4th August, 5:30-7:30pm.

‘Where Music is Made’ is a photography exhibition by Andrew Ross. Andrew’s photographs explore the hidden back rooms, studios and dusty rehearsal spaces of musicians around Wellington and several other NZ towns. It offers a fascinating insight into the murky worlds that musicians inhabit, with around 40 large-format black and white photos of current locations as well as long forgotten spaces.

Andrew Ross, b.1966, Masterton, is a Wellington-based photographer who has actively photographed Wellington's urban landscape since the early 1990s, with emphasis on older buildings, those which are threatened with demolition or significant renovation, and the people who make their lives or livings in the buildings. He is a keen tramper and has a great appreciation of the NZ landscape, which he also photographs. While Ross's photographic oeuvre is essentially documentary, his skill in selecting viewpoint and judging lighting, and his use of a large format camera pushes his work strongly into the sphere of fine art photography. Like Laurence Aberhart, he contact-prints his hand-developed negatives. By this process, the ultimate rendition of tonality and fine detail can be achieved by a skilled practitioner, giving each individual print a unique quality.

Andrew will be doing a Q&A talk and demonstration about his work on Saturday 19th August, 2-3pm

Exhibition runs August 4-29. Open at all gigs, Tuesdays 10-4pm and by appointment.
