Cameron McLaren in conversation with Olivier Laurent

Auckland Festival of Photography presents Talking Culture

In Discussion: 45 mins + Q&A

As the world went into lockdown in 2020, New Zealand-based photographer Cameron McLaren turned his lens to the eerily abandoned city of Auckland. New Zealand quickly became a place of intrigue for the rest of the world which led photo editor of the Washington Post, Olivier Laurent, to commissioning McLaren to highlight what was happening here. McLaren and Laurent will speak about their collaboration to bring this work to an international audience.

As part of the Festival's Isolation theme this series will be on display on light boxes on the Waterfront from 28 May - 16 June. And over the Festival's opening weekend at Ellen Melville Centre (3 - 6 June), the second & closing weekend at Silo 6, Silo Park (11 – 13 June | 18 – 20 June) + Estuary Arts Centre, Orewa (23 June - 4 July)
