Come along to hear about the work of Barry Clothier and see The Simple Image through the eyes of its curators.
Photographer to the stars
In the 1960s, Wellington jazz musician and photographer Barry Clothier was ‘photographer to the stars’, and anyone who was anyone in the local pop scene commissioned a photoshoot with him.
Drawn from Barry Clothier’s personal archives held at the Alexander Turnbull Library, The Simple Image features rarely seen photos of Kiwi icons, including Bruno Lawrence, Maria Dallas, Dinah Lee, The Chicks, and many others.
Exhibition curators Matt Steindl (Alexander Turnbull Library) and Malcom Duffy (Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision) will speak about the work of Barry Clothier, discuss the process of exhibition design and highlight some of their favourite pieces.
