Scrolling through Waikato photographer, Mark Hamilton’s Instagram page during lockdown earlier this year was a delight and a joy.  His daily photos seemed to capture the mood of this time – a quiet, reflective sense of home. But they also had that slightly strange, unsettling quality that the Waikato is so good at delivering.

It was, therefore, an easy decision for the gallery to ask Mark to exhibit some of these works for our first in-person show opening since lockdown. In this exhibition, Mark presents a series of photos titled The Liberation of Limitation.

In addition, we commissioned Hamilton-based writer, Faith Wilson, to reflect on Mark’s photos. For her, the pictures triggered memories of a long-standing, complex friendship, cultivated in the early morning hours going to school in Hamilton East, and surviving to this day.

We hope you’ll join us to view these works in person and to take a moment to reflect together on this shared experience and extraordinary time.
