Two Photos

Two Photos from a recent auction at Art + Object. Both are hand-coloured prints, both about 50 years old although I don’t have dates for them and my knowledge of the history of photographic practices of this period is skimpy.

There is a charm about them that appeals to me, they feel like part of photography’s history. And of course I am living in the South Island right now, in this landscape.

Swan Lake, Kaikoura is by Ellis Dudgeon, and Waves, Kaikoura is a Whites photo.

I missed out on the swans. It went for $220. Waves, I was successful with, for $320. It is 290 x 368mm.
