Tim Flower: In a Different Light
July 18, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - August 5, 2015 @ 3:00 pm
Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 18 July 2 – 3.30pm
Tim Flower is a cinematographer based in Auckland who works both in New Zealand and internationally on a wide range of projects, from documentaries to drama to music videos.
In a Different Light is Tim’s first solo exhibition of his photographic work. In this series, Tim has travelled throughout New Zealand documenting the landscape using rare Kodak Aerochrome 35mm Infrared film – turning the green New Zealand landscapes we are all used to, into surreal explosions of pink and blue.
Infrared film registers a spectrum of light invisible to the human eye known as near-infrared. It was developed at the beginning of the 20th century for uses such as camouflage detection, vegetation surveys and topographical analysis. Kodak Aerochrome registers infrared light reflected off healthy chlorophyll as pink or red.
Kodak Aerochrome 35mm film was the last line of colour infrared film produced and was discontinued in 2007.
