McNamara Gallery Photography opened 25.1.02 and exhibits New Zealand, selected Pacific Rim & International, photographically-based art. We are dedicated to exhibiting and promoting lens-based media, and exploring the range of practice.

And shifting perception has, from the salt print on, been what photography does best. For me the appeal of the salt print lies mostly in its unique physical qualities but also in its alchemical and historical associations, thus providing the perfect medium with which to weave a little fiction in the form of
The Doppler Effect portfolio.

Dan Estabrook [USA]
Using 19 century processes, I make my own "found" photographs in order to re-imagine the early history of Photography from the distance of these 150 years.
