WW II Veterans Portrait Project

April 16, 2014

Portrait Classic On Anzac Day, 25 April 2014, I will be visiting Blenhaim to take part in a major national project by the The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography [NZIPP] to create portraits of New Zealand’s World War Two veterans. The photographic portraits will be gifted by the NZIPP to the Royal New Zealand RSA as part of 2015 centenary ceremonies. The portraits will also be publicly displayed at locations around New Zealand as part of a commemorative touring exhibition. Photographing our WWII veterans is vitally important. Not only will the resulting body of work make an immense contribution to New Zealand’s national archives during the centenary commemorations of WWI, but the act of taking the photographs will show our veterans that they are remembered and that the sacrifices they made for the freedom of us all is still honoured. On Anzac Day this year, NZIPP members will combine efforts nationally to make portraits of New Zealand’s last surviving World War II veterans. On April 25th, over 3,000 World War II veterans will attend ANZAC day services at  more than 140 venues around New Zealand. Our hope is to make a portrait of every one of those veterans. The Chief Executive of the Royal New Zealand RSA, David Moger, believes that the project will result in a collection of national significance. “Not only will the body of work make an immense contribution to New Zealand’s national archives during the centenary commemorations of WWI, but the act of taking the photographs will show our veterans that they are remembered and that the sacrifices they made for the freedom of us all is still honoured,” David says.

Melbourne 2014

January 15, 2014

Have just returned from Melbourne where I was fortunate to visit the Edward Steichen & Art Deco Fashion exhibition currently showing at National Gallery of Victoria [NGV] This beautiful exhibition has more than 200 photographs on display. It captures the golden age of fashion and photography showing the sophistication and elegance of fashion in stunning monochrome photographs! During the period 1923 - 1938, Edward Steichen was the chief photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair: fashion’s most influential and glamorous magazines. Steichen created photos which were imaginative portraits of style talent and glamour. His amazing and groundbreaking work revolutionised fashion photography and subsequently influenced generations photographers worldwide. During my stay in Melbourne I also met for a quick chat with photographer Bob Van Der Toorren who operates from the prestigious Block Arcade since 1978. In the early days when he started working in photography, he once shot twelve wedding in one day! Van Der Toorren had was equipped with only one flash light from the studio that employed him at the time "due to the high cost". On a typical wedding, he was given only twelve negative sheets and was expected to create at least eight usable wedding photographs out of these. Bob was the first ever student in the southern hemisphere to graduate with a "Associate Diploma in Illustrative Photography". He is an Accredited Full Member of Australian Institute of Professional Photography [AIPP], specialising in portraits. An AIPP Certified Photographer, in 2013 Van Der Toorren received Honorary Life Membership from AIPP!
