Niki Boon – Summer
June 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Obscura Gallery proudly presents New Zealand photographer Niki Boon in her first United States solo exhibition debut of her photographs that document the family’s rural home-schooled life in Marlborough, New Zealand. Boon’s photographic work was born from her intense desire to document her family’s days as they pursue an alternative education and lifestyle in a rural environment on top of the East coast of the South island of New Zealand. The black and white images reveal an intimate portrait into the family’s lifestyle that this rural environment has nurtured. The mother of four shares her family’s life with camera wizardry that utilizes motion, incredible perspective and depth of field as well as a style that bears influence from those of Jock Sturges and Sally Mann but exudes her own distinction using a wide-angle, sometimes close-up lens and ground-perspective imagery.
