The power of portraiture : representing leadership in New Zealand from 1840 to the present by Erin Griffey( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historically, portraiture has been integral to showcasing power, and power has been intrinsic in the portrait. "The Power of Portraiture" examines this in a specifically New Zealand context. The aim is to fertilise the current renaissance of portraiture as a genre in this country, to foster critical dialogue about leadership and its representations in the visual arts and to inspire the public with the stories of its leaders and the beauty of its portraiture. Published to coincide with an exhibition of portraits in Auckland and Wellington, "The Power of Portraiture" comprises 40 portraits of major public figures, male and female, Maori and Pakeha, conservative and liberal, from a number of different professional backgrounds. The accompanying text provides a wealth of art historical, cultural and historical insight and invites critical reflection on New Zealand's ideals of leadership

From Prague to Auckland : the photographs of Frank Hofmann (1916-89) by Leonard Bell( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frank Hofmann arrived in New Zealand in 1940 as a refugee from Nazism. He quickly established himself as a professional photographer, first in Christchurch, then in Auckland from 1941. In Auckland he initially worked for Clifton Firth, the most prominent photographer, and from 1948-75 for Christopher Bede Studios, the country's largest commercial portrait business. This was Hofmann's day job. He also pursued art photography intensely, exploring the aesthetic and poetic potentialities of the medium in various genres: portraiture, experimental and abstract, architectural, and landscape. Besides being an outstanding photographer, Hofmann is particularly important historically for introducing inter-war European modernist ideas and practices into New Zealand. He was a semi-professional musician and, from the early 1940s, a member of the Auckland String Players, which evolved into the Auckland Symphonia. With his wife, the writer Helen Shaw (Hella Hofmann), he was a central figure in a lively, multi-disciplinary cultural scene; closely involved with the visual arts, modernist architecture and literature. He photographed most of the leading figures of this milieu -- conductors Georg Tintner and Juan Matteucci, musicians Lili Kraus and Valmai Moffat, painters Eric Lee Johnson and Louise Henderson, architects Vernon Brown and Ivan Juriss, and writers Frank Sargeson and A.R.D. Fairburn. Once asked for his biography, Hofmann replied that a photographer's biography was his work."--Publisher website

"Lonnie Hutchinson is an Auckland-based artist of Sāmoan and Māori descent whose practice subtly addresses issues of female experience from indigenous and feminist perspectives. The survey exhibition Black Bird brings together performance, installation and animation works from the last seventeen years of Lonnie's practice, shown together for the very first time. A historical consciousness is reflected in the development of Hutchinson's visual language and motifs, which combines traditional Māori and Pacific design while paying homage to Pacific women's arts like tīvaevae (quilt making) and weaving"--University Of Auckland
