Case Studies South | Exhibition

Auckland Festival of Photography 2021: Case Studies South | Allpress Studio, Auckland.

Following on from their botanical photographic exhibition ‘Case Studies’ Mark Smith and Felicity Jones present a new body of work which continues their exploration of peoples’ connection with plants and the ongoing tensions between economic, social and environmental needs (and desires).
Central to their first series was the fascinating story of the Wardian Case, the humble wood and glass terrarium that was instrumental in shaping our global environment today.
Case Studies South ventures further into humankind’s relationships with plant life, still through a New Zealand/Aotearoa lense but this time with more of a focus on South Island stories.
