Click! Portraits of New Zealanders

Author(s): Reg Graham

Photography

Reg Graham is well-known for his photographs of people involved in the arts: those who have, in their own way, influenced the cultural life of New Zealand. In CLICK! Graham captures the essence of over ninety of the most intriguing and compelling artistic personalities of the last decade. Reg Graham's splendid black and white portraits give us a fascinating and intimate glimpse into the characters of luminary painters, writers, actors, musicians and dancers. His gallery includes a Renaissance-like photograph of artist Ralph Hotere, the striking image of sculptor Bing Dawe, Margaret Mahy kicking up her heels, Jane Westaway looking like a 60s fashion model... Each portrait is accompanied by a short bio of the subject and Graham's description of the photo shoot: collecting walnuts with writer Janet Frame, catching Hone Tuwhare at the Burns Fellows reunion in 1998, waiting backstage with Rima te Waiata... Wherever possible Graham photographs people in a context that is both familiar and important to them. He avoids delving into the philosophical reasons for doing what he does: preferring the photograph to speak for itself. First published October 2006.
