Summary: "One of Aotearoa New Zealand's most perceptive artists, Laurence Aberhart is a photographer who makes images of the vanishing past in an accelerating world. It was Christchurch where he developed his eye for the scenes that later brought his work to international attention. These early photographs of ordinary suburban houses, abandoned shops, masonic lodges and long-lost fast-food joints--some of them now iconic, others unseen or little known--depict a city and a way of life that no longer exists. They also reveal a young artist training himself to see critical moments of transition in the everyday world around him, working his way slowly towards his big subject--the passing of time"--Publisher description.
