Lloyd Macomber: 21 in 21 – Our Built Heritage
September 1 @ 5:30 pm - September 27 @ 3:00 pmFree
As part the Festival of Architecture 2017, 21 in 21 represents the confluence of architect and photographer in the continuum that is recording New Zealand’s built heritage.
Lloyd Macomber is a practicing architect and director of heritage specialists Salmond Reed Architects (SRA). Images in this exhibition will include subjects Macomber and his firm have had a hand in restoring and adaptively reusing or altering including; Auckland’s Chief Post Office, Civic Theatre, Allendale House, Art Gallery, War Memorial Museum and Wellington’s Sacred Heart Cathedral. Other images represent the everyday shack, barn or pre-loved structure found on the side of the road.
A camera over the shoulder has been Lloyd’s constant companion long before joining SRA and for well over 2 decades he has sought out image-worthy compositions on countless subjects – typically old buildings – both from afar and up close. Along with the stock in trade photographers tools of composition, pattern, viewpoint, tone, colour and the must have tool – light, Macomber revels in the well used, the worn and the faded buildings from yesteryear. The patina of age in old building elements continues to be the main attraction.
