FromThePit 2021


Tuesday 25 - Sunday 30 May

Time

10.00AM – 5.00PM

Venue: Pūmanawa Community Exhibition Space

FromThePit is an annual curated exhibition of music photography featuring images of New Zealand musicians captured by some of the best music photographers in the country.

Dozens of photographers are ‘in the pit’ of music venues up and down Aotearoa each week, capturing images of our vibrant music scene.  It's a difficult and unpredictable environment to work in, but these photographers work tirelessly to capture the magic they see before them.

Part artists, part historians, but all music fans, they strive to take the perfect photo, which reflects how it felt to be at the concert and communicates the excitement of a live music event.

Over 30 photographers are represented in this year’s exhibition, held simultaneously in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch during New Zealand Music Month.

As musicians, venues and the whole eco-system of creatives struggle in these COVID times, these photos are an important reminder of the power of live music.
