The Impossbile Garden by Emma Bass

Event Details

As part of the Auckland Festival of Photography 2020, an exhibition of richly decorative floral still lifes by photographer Emma Bass will feature in the grand 1870’s ballroom at historic Alberton.

Bass’s work examines the beauty of nature, blurring the boundaries between photography, painting and collage. ‘Exploring beauty though a manipulated lens’ the illusory perfection of the flower portraits fuse the heritage of the masters with a contemporary sensibility to recontextualise the genre in the 21st century.

The exhibition is on until Sunday 26 July.


Exhibition to the entry is free.

However normal admission fees apply to view Alberton house (children are FREE and adults are $10)
