Sample photos of artist and photographer Sally Griffin's collection of artists portraits from the 70's and 80's in and around Auckland.
  • Tony Fomison and large painting, Barry Lett Gallery, Victoria St, Auckland city, 1975. Tony was living in Gunson St, Freemans Bay and did all his paintings there.   <br />
I remember he had a vast collection of very old white and glass egg cups which were housed on shelves in the stairwell<br />

  • David Parkyn & Tony Fomison at the Acacia Bay carvings, Lake Taupo, 1981 . We travelled down from Rotorua where we had been at an art opening party. Tony Fomison had just been for a swim with Brian Potiki and was keeping himself warm under his coat. The massive carvings, done by Greg Matatiwi-Brightwell and Jono Randell and others, were completed on a PEP scheme for the unemployed where payment was not much more than ‘the dole’. The carvings are now a huge tourist attraction and their humble beginning are forgotten. New Zealand.  REAL PEOPLE.  (Photo by Sally Griffin/ real-people.co.nz)

  • Phil Clairmont, David Parkyn, Nigel Brown and Sally Griffin, Whanganui River, Whanganui, 1982<br />
This was taken during a journey to visit the grave of J.K Baxter at Jerusalem, Whanganui River.  Phil Clairmont had gone to stay in a large, old, two-storey former hotel owned, but not lived in, by his friends in Whanganui. He wanted to get away from the Auckland scene. Nigel Brown went too and they set up studios in the downstairs area and Phil had installed a printing room in the bar area and the hotel filled up with a lot of his paintings, posters and lino cuts.

She has just published a major work ‘Pewhairangi – Bay of Islands’ Missions and Maori 1814 – 1845’.

  • Odo Strewe at his home in Eumundi, Queensland 1975. Odo Strewe escaped from Nazi Germany in 1937 when his political activities became known and he was being interrogated regularly. He arrived in Auckland. When the war broke out in 1939, he was incarcerated on Matiu-Somes Island, in the Wellington Harbour. He and other non-Nazi Germans protested that they did not want to be in the same quarters as the Nazi Germans, of which there were some. Odo wanted to help the New Zealand war effort and never forgave New Zealand for imprisoning him for over four years. He ended up working for our secret service during the war from Matiu-Somes Island. After the war, he also pioneered the use of native plants in landscape gardening here. His contribution to New Zealand is better known  now through the work of Kerry Francis, an architectural lecturer at Unitec, Auckland. Odo moved to Eumundi in Queensland in the 1970s and lived on 10 acres of tropical forest with gardens and a large man-made lake.<br />
