  • Artbay Gallery - Jae Frew

Jae Frew, a distinguished portrait photographer hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, boasting a career spanning three decades. Frew's distinctive approach captures the genuine essence of his subjects with minimal direction.
This exhibition invites you to explore the world of New Zealand's endangered and extinct native birds through Frew's lens. His art pays tribute to these magnificent creatures and the dedicated conservationists who safeguard them. Inspired by Old Master painters and modern photographers like Annie Leibovitz, Frew's work masterfully encapsulates the avian subjects' essence. The birds are elevated to a reverential status with Frew's unique blend of formal fine-art style and grand bespoke wooden frames, each crafted from reclaimed native timber, adding to their authenticity.
