We have invited Ilan Wittenberg FNZIPP, photographer, to talk about the process of putting together a body of work, from genesis to exhibition.
Ilan, a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, was Auckland Photographer of the Year in 2015, 2016 and 2018; was 2016 TRAVCOM Travel Photographer of the Year as well as Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 Sony Alpha Awards.
Ilan has had a few huge projects over the last few years. During 2015, Ilan documented people in the Old City of Jerusalem which enabled him to produce a compelling portfolio of monochrome photographs. ‘Faces of Jerusalem’ was exhibited at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery in early 2016.
Commencing in 2014, ‘Bare Truth’ is a captivating collection of portraits of New Zealand men who are humble, courageous and vulnerable. The ‘Bare Truth’ portfolio was chosen to be exhibited at the 2016 Head On Photo Festival in Sydney as well as the Signature Programme of the 2016 Auckland Festival of Photography.
His current project, ‘From here to Africa – The Maasai People’ is a collection of captivating portraits of the Maasai people from Tanzania. The exhibition opens tomorrow night, 28 February.
