View like no other A photographic exhibition at Pataka presents Maori gods as you have never seen them before, thanks largely to a technique that will have viewers rocking left and right on their feet. Norm Heke is an estab- lished photographer, who has featured extensively in numerous publications and exhibitions. For the past 20 years he has been an imaging specialist at Te Papa. In four of the five works dis- played at Pataka in OMG: Maori Gods in the 21st Cen- tury, Heke uses lenticular flip effect technology, where one image is layered over another. Viewed at different angles, the scenes appear to flip'' back and forth, similar to the current All Black Weetbix cards. Heke used work colleagues and friends as models in a stu- dio, mining the thousands of images at his disposal to cre- ate the backgrounds. The large-scale photographs show off his own passion for Maori gods and how they may look in a modern context. I saw a billboard using this technology earlier this year and had the idea for this exhi- bition. It was a gamble but I'm really pleased with how it's turned out -- you're always reflecting on your past and moving forward and I wanted to take that a step further with this lenticular method.'' The images of Hinetitama, Tane, Tumatauenga and Maui, along with a 3-D shot of Papatuanuku, are affecting -- Heke says the woman who is photographed as Hinetitama (goddess of the underworld) cried when she saw the photo- graph. Her moko was done by Mark Kopua, who is based in Titahi Bay. Heke hopes to take the exhi- bition elsewhere in New Zea- land and overseas, and his next challenge is to produce more 3-D photography. This is an exciting starting point for me.'' The exhibition runs until November 27. In our view Top shots: Tranquility, taken by Roger Beckett, is just one of the top-drawer photographs on show early next month at Bay Gallery in Plimmerton. By KRIS DANDO You may have seen Kapiti Camera Club members at different events in Porirua over the years -- now's the chance for them to shine in their own exhibition. Showing next month at the Bay Gallery, Plimmerton, In Our View will comprise 30 photo- graphs. Most are in frames, but at least one pho- tographer is using an unusual medium -- corru- gated iron. The club's secretary, Meyricke Serjeantson, says it gives us a chance to hang our pictures on the wall'' and show off their passion for the medium. While there are many local scenes and New Zea- land flora and fauna -- including Ray Lovell's spec- tacular 2009 dolphin photograph from Doubtful Sound -- there are portraits and also a few arty techniques on show as well. We've been building up to this for three months. Our aim [in choosing the selected 30] was to not just choose the standard shots but things that really stood out. One of our members will be using the old salt technique and I guess it shows that people can be artists as well as photographers, there's plenty of imagination being used.'' In Our View runs October 1, 2 and 8, 2pm till 4pm, 4 School Rd, Plimmerton.
