Laurence Aberhart - New Zealand Photographer

Born 1949, Nelson NZ. Aberhart uses an 8x10" Korona view camera which he bought in 1974 reflecting a sense of time, place and cultural history. "What Ive tried to do is take the sensibility and the aesthetic, that overall self awareness of all that early photography, and try and do the same in New Zealand but incorporate some aspects of contemporary art practice into it".

Laurence Aberhart--was born in 1949 and is known for his photographs of buildings and or landmarks signifying history. Aberhart's photos consisted mainly of buildings, houses, and a few landscapes. I choose this picture because it demonstrates a rare form of historic precedence. All the picture is mainly land, what sticks out is the older shed in the middle of nowhere. This reminds me of time before tall buildings, before cars, and even before cameras! This is my form of history.
