Unique photo exhibition in forest Valgums

ANDRIS APSE is one of New Zealand’s leading landscape photographers. During a career spanning over thirty years, he has won many major awards, and is acknowledged as one of the finest wilderness photographers in the world.

Andris Apse was born in Smarde, Latvia, on 26th September 1943 and emigrated to New Zealand with his mother Kamilla after the Second World War. He started his career as a woodsman with the New Zealand Forest Service but left to purchase a commercial photographic Studio in 1969. By the 1980s he was completely devoted to landscape photography.

His work has been reproduced in the New York Times, National Geographic, New Zealand Geographic, Time magazine and Newsweek, among many other publications. Andris Apse has also published over 20 books, including the phenomenally successful New Zealand Landscapes, which has sold more than 150 000 copies, and Spirit of the South, Light & Landscape, Fiordland.

After 46 years believing Andri’s father Voldemārs Apse was dead, by incredible good fortune Kamilla and Andris re–established contact with him in 1990. Andris lives with his partner Lynne in the shadow of the Southern Alps at Okarito, on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

With this exhibition Andris Apse returned home symbolically.

Exhibition is opened every day from 9am till 7pm.
