Stories With Pictures at the AUCKLAND WRITERS FESTIVAL

On Friday May 16, 2pm until 3.30pm in the Goodman Fielder Room, Level 4, of the Aotea Center, I will be presenting a workshop as part of the AUCKLAND WRITERS FESTIVAL.

In short, I'll be talking about what makes a good photograph. Will be fun! The festival have this to say about the event: With more than 380 billion photographs taken each year, each telling a story, almost everybody these day considers themselves a photographer. But while seemingly easy, taking a great photograph is anything but. Art-based photographer Harvey Benge published his first photobook in 1993; twenty years on with more than 40 publications to his credit, Benge can spot a great picture from a dog. In this workshop he explains the distinction.
