THE PRESIDENTS: DAVID BURNETT
20 February 2016 - 15 May 2016 | Mitre 10 Mega Create Gallery
Award-winning American photojournalist David Burnett is one of the few photographers to have photographed all US Presidents since John F. Kennedy. From iconic statesmen such as JFK, to Richard Nixon’s downfall, and the significance of Barack Obama’s election, these historical moments have reverberated around the world. Spanning five decades, Burnett’s images are markers of time and provide an up-close and unique perspective. Toured by The Australian Centre for Photography, this is the first time Burnett’s presidential images have been exhibited in New Zealand.
