Murray Eskdale’s Photographic Take On Dunedin Architecture

 

Who better to capture Dunedin’s cityscapes with an expert lens than Murray Eskdale? The curator of Mint Gallery (Moray Place) also happens to be a world-renowned photographer whose incredible photos are featured on Saatchi Art’s website – yes that Charles Saatchi!

Last night, Murray’s new exhibition, ‘Flux’, opened at Mint Gallery. His images individually capture the industrial (e.g. ‘Half Time’) and the residential (e.g. ‘State’) aspects of Dunedin but flow to tell a united story. We were also entertained by Gisborne poet, Johnathan Pere, whose recitals of ‘Otago’ and ‘Coffee at Mou Cafe’ added to the Dunedin spirit of the evening. The exhibition is on until 27 February and is definitely worth a visit! Individual prints are for sale.
