Ans Westra: Selected Photographs – people of the Whanganui Region

21 May – 21 August 2011

Ans Westra is one of New Zealand’s most respected and accomplished documentary photographers. After arriving in the country from her native Holland, Westra made her first trip up the Whanganui River in 1960 and began an engagement with the people of the region that continues to this day. This exhibition is drawn from the Sarjeant Gallery’s collection and features work from the early 1960s to the early 1990s, taking in settlements on the Whanganui River, at Ratana and a selection of works undertaken whilst Westra was artist-in-residence at Tylee Cottage in 1993.
