Alberton

In Alberton’s grand Victorian ballroom haunting images of long abandoned, dilapidated homes both pose ironic contrasts and find resonant echoes in a house that was itself saved from dereliction and like everything, continues to be subject to the ravages of time. This exhibition curated for the Auckland Festival of Photography features the work of three independent photographers working within an international practice of ‘Urban Exploration’. Their photographic work seeks both to document the unique forgotten places they visit and to present the beauty of contemporary ruins in an aesthetic ‘Art of Falling Apart’.
