Andrew Ross: I Last Saw You There

16 April–15 May 2011

I Last Saw You There surveys Wellington photographer Andrew Ross's work since the 1990s. Mostly he photographs Wellington. His black-and-white photos index a hidden city, focussing on settings which have to be sought out: factory basements, secondhand shops, and private homes. Ross documented the construction of the bypass through the upper Cuba Street precinct, the streets of Newtown, Mitcheltown in Aro Valley, and the waterfront. He is also a tramper, and photos of makeshift huts, sloping hills, and yawning ravines from his expeditions beyond the city form a less-known chapter of his work.
