Here in Aotearoa we have some of the finest live music photographers. From the Pit exhibition which is on show around the country currently showcases the best of the best.
Curated by Dave Simpson, Chontalle Musson and our own Reuben Raj, From The Pit is a curated exhibition of images of New Zealand musicians playing live in New Zealand. It is a celebration of the craft and art of live music photography.
Each week dozens of photographers are huddled into the pits of music venues up and down the country capturing photos of New Zealand’s vibrant music scene. Part artists, part historians, but all music fans, they all strive to take the perfect photo which reflects how it felt to be at the concert and communicates the excitement of a live music event.
Many of the images may be purchased by contacting the artists. Details HERE
The print exhibition was displayed as part of New Zealand Music Month.
