Auckland - Two Geo-Photographers: Joseph Divis and Lloyd Homer - An illustrated talk by Simon Nathan

1
PD Hours
Joseph Divis and Lloyd Homer both photographed aspects of New Zealand’s landscape and mining history. 

About this event

Divis was a working miner from 1909-39. Photography was his hobby, and he recorded life in mining towns where he lived, particularly Waiuta and Waihi.

Homer worked for the NZ Geological Survey in the late 20th century, specialising in aerial photography before the days of drones and satellites.

The work of these two photographers is now a valuable heritage resource, recording both the natural environment and the nature of past mining.

Simon Nathan has produced books illustrating the work of both photographers. He will have copies of the book about Lloyd Homer for sale on the night ($30 cash per book).

Itinerary: Regional organisers will promote the talk in their regions closer to the date. This event is open to the public, so please invite friends and colleagues. Events will start with 30mins socialising before the talk commences.
