On a Saturday Night Book launch this Friday!
Text by Michele Frey and Sara Newman
Photographs by John O’Malley and our own CPIT Senior Lecturer in Photography,
On a Saturday Night is a warm and colourful celebration of the strength and spirit of small towns all around New Zealand. From Whakapara in the north to Mossburn in the south, community halls have been the focal point of small towns for as long as the towns have been on the map.
The stunning photography by John O’Malley (North Island) and John Maillard (South Island) capture the essence of what each hall has meant to its community. The stories and pictures have recorded an aspect of New Zealand’s unique culture that seems to be passing into history.
Check here for more information and to see if your home town hall has been photographed for this book.
