Coming to Selwyn Libraries - 43 NZ Authors exhibition  - 28 May 2015

"Writing is like breathing to me." Witi Ihimaera

"Every word is like a little seed." Courtney Sina Meredith

The '43 NZ Authors' exhibition showcases the photography of Maja Moritz:

Photography is telling stories without words.
It is about expressing feelings, often unspoken feelings.
It is about the search for the essence of a moment.
Fleeting, ephemeral, personal, somehow intimate without intimacy,
an impression of spirit.

This portrait photography exhibition will also feature the works of 43 New Zealand authors. The exhibition will be travelling around Selwyn Library branches in the coming months, starting at Darfield Library on 4 June.

Other locations and dates will be posted once they have been confirmed, so watch this space!
