Brian Brake: Lens on the world

2 September - 20 November 2011
Special Exhibitions Hall

Brian Brake was New Zealand’s best known photographer from the 1960s to the 1980s, and arguably remains so today. He gained international prominence with his ‘Monsoon’ essay on India, which was seen around the world in Life, Paris Match, Epoca and other picture magazines in 1961.

This exhibition features 165 superb photographic reproductions from Te Papa’s permanent collection, and is the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of this notable photographer’s work, spanning his forty-year career.

Brian Brake: Lens on the world was developed by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Presented in partnership with the Christchurch Art Gallery and proudly supported by The Press.

Free exhibition tours daily. Meet in the exhibition space at 2.00 pm
