Imitation Is The Sincerest Form Of Flattery


Toi Ora • 1 June - 19 June

4-6pm Wed 1 June
10am-4pm Mon to Fri
6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn
Toi Ora Photography Class

2021 saw the passing of one of Toi Ora’s photographers and poets, Mike Williams. His absence at Toi Ora is strongly felt as we move into 2022.

T.S Eliot once said “The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn”. From sentiments such as this, we the photographers want to honour Mike’s memory by working in his unique style. We will explore extreme vibrancy and high contrast, amplifying the connection between nature’s colour palette and the experience of visceral feelings.
