Voyage into the Heartland: Photographic Works from the Batten Collection will be travelling to the Lysaght-Watt Gallery in Hāwera from 7 February - 4 March 2018. Come and discover the photographic works of the Batten Family from Tokaora.

During the early 1930s the family set out across the North Island of New Zealand with their camera and a horse called Judy to photograph the central region of the Land of the Long White Cloud. Their perspective is a particular one, carrying us on a journey into early 20th century life in New Zealand with practical but sensitive objectivity. While their landscape images have a sense of objectivity and bleak isolation, their portraiture shows an affectionate bond between the photographers and subjects. This familiarity creates an unburdened, carefree outlook from each sitter they photograph. These experiences stretched their understanding of the world around them and ultimately had a great effect on the family.
Voyage into the Heartland showcases the Batten Collection, a unique photographic anthology exposing original landscapes of the 1930s unseen before in New Zealand. These landscape images speak of a time where landscape photography was in its infancy and still forging its own identity.
