Monuments - an exhibition of black & white photographs by Steven la Plante
"The photographs in this exhibition represent a small selection of a project I have been working on for about 10 years. These monuments are everywhere in New Zealand; a part of the landscape of every town and city and a rallying point for the communities on ANZAC Day. They are a physical reminder of the lives lost; a 'cenotaph' as literally an empty tomb.
I have attempted to show them as art, as architecture and as icons of nationhood. They are separated and displayed as North Island/ South Island. The photographs were shot on film, processed and printed by myself." Steve La Plante
