Neville Porter

  • Biography

    ‘East meets West’ captures the diversity of Central Otago and beyond by fusing the centuries old traditional craft of Japanese washi paper with the 19 th century western tradition of photography.

    Neville Porter’s compositions capture fleeting moments which have been preceded by intense studies of the power and diversity of these dynamic landscapes. The burnt brown, the snow white slopes, the lush green spring growth and the colours of berries and flowers are dramatic against the sculptural landscape.
    The ever-changing weather creates a rolling drama with light and dazzling effects. This is a landscape that never ceases to amaze.

    Neville’s compositions encourage the viewer to be curious and contemplate unfamiliar scenes that evoke familiar landscapes. The opportunity to document this place often emanates from a serendipitous moment!

    For more than three decades Neville Porter has been fascinated by the process of creating photography.
    In 2018, he began exploring a new medium involving washi paper . Neville went to Japan to better understand the 1600 year old process of this papermaking. Its unique qualities provided an amazing opportunity to translate his photography in a very special way. Rembrandt and other contemporary artists greatly prized the special qualities of washi paper imported by the East India Company in the 17th century. This traditional handmade paper was registered by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage item in 2014
