This year we're celebrating the 60th anniversary of that historic climb with an intimate exhibition looking at the ascent and the extraordinary legacy left in Nepal by Sir Edmund Hillary.
Robin Morrison was one of New Zealand’s most celebrated photojournalists. His striking, unpretentious images allowed us to see ourselves, and our way of life, as if for the first time. 'A Decade of Days' features a selection of Robin’s black and white photographs of his city, Auckland, from 1971 to 1985.
