Mark Purdom's award winning publication From certainty to doubt will be explored in a gallery exhibition of the same name. The photographic works in this exhibition examine some of nature’s fundamental survival strategies – mimicry, camouflage and deception - and look at how humans have adapted these strategies in their lives.
Join us for the opening preview Tue 26 Sep, 4:30 - 6:30pm.
Mark Purdom’s photographic work, while a commentary on people’s influence on the environment, also plays with our concept or arguably our preconceptions of the picturesque.

Several of his photographic projects, namely In Such Multiples As Is Almost Incredible, Untitled - Launderette Series, Coverup 2001-2006, From certainty to doubt and Mr Whittaker were finalists in the New Zealand National Contemporary Art Award.
