As part of the 2018 Auckland Festival of Photography, Northart revisits one of the most compelling exhibitions the gallery has staged in its 20-year history.

Internationally renowned camera artist Harvey Benge’s ‘Aide Memoire and Other Stories’ presents a number of images from the period Benge lived in Paris, first seen at Northart in 2002, in a fresh context, pairing them in counterpoint against work made in recent years, some as recently as Feb 2018.

“[I find it] interesting to compare my contemporary ideas and the executional, formal aspects of my new work with images made earlier,” says Benge.

“[It has been suggested by one critic] that I now make tougher images, on one hand visually simpler but on the other hand more conceptually loaded. You will need to be the judge of that.”
