Mark Brewer Prepares for Exhibit at Phoenix Photo Studio
The Auckalnd born artist has been a member of the Auckland arts community for over a decade, and was integral in building the art scene to international recognition.
"When people think of art scenes, New York and Berlin come to minds first. I want to change that," Brewer recently explained. "It was never my intention to become a photographer, but my photos speak to people. I cannot keep them hidden."
The photography exhibit, a first for Mark Brewer, will be held at his Phoenix Photo Studio in Auckland during the month of October. With over 40 images being prepared for the show, Mark has a lot to show those who will visit his studio. All of the images being shown are available for private sale through the art gallery.
Phoenix Photo Studio is owned wholly by Mark Brewer, and the space has been used by other local artists to show their work.
"Mark has committed himself to the Auckland arts community, shown his support in many different ways, and we are excited to see him launch his photographic career," said wife Deborah Marall.
Mark Brewer has appeared in Auckland Arts Magazine, Down Under Culture blog, and featured in most New Zealand newspapers. His photographic works are expected to sell out.
