Eye Contact

March, NZ, 2013:  An excerpt by renowned New Zealand Art/Photography reviewer Peter Ireland, on my latest exhibition Stilled Life. 

Photography’s documentary tradition that Cunningham’s images add to has never been very fashionable in terms of art collecting, for pretty obvious reasons. Why tolerate a stone in your shoe when you can simply buy another pair? Documentary may not be fashionable, but it’s never been irrelevant, and it survives with a vigour beyond the needs of any imprimatur from the art world. Its needs are not the needs of art historians, collectors, careerists or auctioneers.
