Picture The Nation
STOP PRESS 21/12/2007
Late this year the New Zealand Portrait Gallery (NZPG) our joint venture partner in the Shed 11 project wished to withdraw, and accordingly the joint venture has been terminated.
There were four very successful exhibitions in Shed 11 which gave some indication of the calibre of programmes we could jointly host. While we were disappointed that we were not able to move forward with the project, we wish the Portrait Gallery success in its future endeavours.  An unavoidable ramification of this, however, is that the significant funding package that was agreed with Wellington City Council is no longer available.

We wish to thank the many people who helped us over the last several years.  And also the many supporters of our publishing, exhibition and collection services since 1985. We are now exploring how best to ensure the integrity of the NZCP collection and the future of the New Zealand Journal of Photography.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us and we will do our best to answer your queries.
