Take 12! December 2014 is an online exhibition of images by 12 photographers from different parts of the world – all taken on phone cameras. The brainchild of Meg Greene Malvasi at Move the Chair, I was delighted to be asked to take part, particularly as it has introduced me to some wonderful photographers whose work I hadn’t seen before.
If you’d like to see a snapshot of 12 bloggers’ day – click here. Each participant’s work has its own page, which you can access from the menu at the top of the page.
One of my favourite sculptures from this year’s NZ Sculpture OnShore exhibition, John Ferguson’s wonderful ‘Blooming Buckets.’ Literally made of large plastic buckets mounted on a steel “stem”, this piece is just so colourful and full of joy. Set against the backdrop of Rangitoto Island, it proved to be one of the most memorable and photographed works in the exhibition.
