Auckland - the Photobook is alive and well!

Across the street from my local supermarket is a wall where from time-to-time site works are installed. Here is an image that took my eye. For some reason the artist's name is nowhere to be found, but upon inquiry I discovered the piece was made by Auckland photographer Mark Smith whose work I like and admire.

We have Stephen Shore, William Eggleston (or perhaps it's Christenberry?), Irving Penn, Larry Towell, Harry Callahan, Sally Mann and Josef Koudelka. And we seem to have a love of silver cars in this city too.
