Latitude Magazine


Latitude Magazine wanted me to photograph a collection of Depression Glass owned by local Oamaruvian Bruce Comfort.

Depression glass was produced in the United States by about 20 companies to attract people to businesses or buy products, much the same as some supermarkets these days offer cutlery and dinnerware as incentives to shop.

The photoshoot took place  at Mr Comfort’s home using the light available and for individual pieces, black cloth as a backdrop.

The glass pieces looked beautiful in the magazine and Bruce held an exhibition of the glass at the Oamaru Textile Emporium in 2014.
