Two geo-photographers: Joseph Divis and Lloyd Homer – an illustrated talk by Simon Nathan

Joseph Divis and Lloyd Homer both photographed aspects of New Zealand’s landscape and mining history. Divis was a working miner from 1909–39. Photography was his hobby, and he recorded life in mining towns where he lived, particularly Waiuta and Waihi. Homer worked for the NZ Geological Survey in the late 20th century, specialising in aerial photography before the days of drones and satellites. The work of these two photographers is now a valuable heritage resource, recording both the natural environment and the nature of past mining.

Arrive 5:30pm for networking, finger food and light refreshments. Talk starts 6:00pm.
