All Woman, Bev Short / 2 February - 17 March 2013

All Woman - A Modern Portrait of New Zealand Women, Photography by Bev Short

Some of the faces are instantly recognizable, some aren't - but all the women featured in All Woman have a unique story to tell. Wellington-based photographer Bev Short has spent more than two years travelling the length and breadth of New Zealand capturing images of women who inspire her.

From a Carmelite nun to Olympic sportswoman Barbara Kendall ironing in her curlers - the result is a collection of original and intimate portraits capturing the essence of Kiwi women. A touring exhibition from The National Portrait Gallery.
