a gallery presents Auckland based, Dunedin born photographer Neil Satori in a special ONE NIGHT ONLY photography exhibition and screening, The Quiet Grief of Men, at a gallery 393 Princes street on Tuesday 27th March at 6pm …
Not afraid to explore the personal and the intimate in his photography, Neil Satori’s primary influence has been a series of workshops held at AUT University since 2006 featuring French photographer Antoine D Agata, Dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra, Paul Graham and American photographers John Gossage, Alex Soth, Lewis Baltz and Todd Hido.
“I was influenced by what those photographers had in common, each of them an empathy with the human condition and I was encouraged by South African photographer Pieter Hugo (Nollywood) and Quentin Bajac, Chief Curator of Photography at the Centre Pompidou in Paris to publish images I’d shown at the workshop earlier this year. I’m delighted to be doing this in Dunedin for the first time, it’s a discerning audience”. Neil Satori
The Quiet Grief of Men will be a New Zealand entrant in the Dummy Book Awards for unpublished photographic books at the 5th International Fotobook Festival in Paris in April.
