Seeing the light: Inside New Zealand photographer Cody Ellingham's love affair with Tokyo

Cody Ellingham is an architectural photographer and art director who grew up in Hawkes Bay, but now spends his days capturing the beauty of Tokyo’s otherworldly buildings. His new exhibition, Future Cities, uses sophisticated photography and editing techniques to explore what a city of the future could look like. Here, he shares his take on the intersection between technology, architecture and art.

Artist Andrew Steel and photographer Matt Quérée have come together to create a photography series called BodyLandscape, which features 20 women in the nude painted to merge with the landscape behind them.

Here, the pair talk how the concept came to life.

Auckland artist Emma Bass, whose photographic work “Hydrangeas 8.50 am” from her Imperfect series was selected for the Summer Exhibition at the 2016 Royal Academy in London, has embarked on a fresh new path.  And it was her visit to that capital city that planted the seed – pun quite possibly intended.
