Exhibition Info

Thank you for sharing your historical images with us in 2018. Displays were available in the seven participating neighbourhoods during October, 2018.

RE:TRACE reflects and celebrates Auckland neighbourhoods through historical and contemporary imagery.

Historical images were collected through residents, community groups and public archives. These images were displayed alongside a present-day photo essay by a photographer who had ties to the neighbourhood.

While we celebrate the heritage of Auckland, the contemporary photo essays allowed us to stop and reflect on the now. The images presented became a snapshot of 2018 for future generations to enjoy.

In 2018, the RE:TRACE project focussed on seven Auckland neighbourhoods with public displays live in each centre; Northcote, Takapuna, Panmure, Avondale, Wynyard Quarter, Manukau and Onehunga.
