FOND MEMORIES: A series of photos taken by the late Robin Morrison will be on display in Otara’s town centre.

Take a trip down memory lane through the eyes of one of New Zealand's most celebrated photojournalists.

A selection of the late Robin Morrison's photographs will be exhibited across three window boxes in Otara's town centre.

A series of images will be posted with the line - "Do these spark a memory?"

People are encouraged to get in touch via twitter #modernmorrison or email robinmorrison@auckland to share memories sparked by the photographs.

They started to appear in the town centre last Friday and will continue until April 19.

The mini display is part of a greater exhibition of Morrison's work on display at Auckland Museum.


Morrison (1944-1993) created striking and unpretentious images throughout his career as a photojournalist. The museum exhibition features a selection of his black and white photographs of Auckland taken between 1971 and 1985.

Most were found in a folder labelled "Decade of Days" among vast collections of images given to the museum before he died.

Many had been published by the Listener magazine.

The free exhibition shows Auckland's hidden places, events and its people, famous and infamous.
