In 1972, Stuart Broughton (then aged five), arrived in New Zealand aboard a passenger liner.
Prior to photography, Broughton'sexperiences working in the music business, magazines, art house cinema and even the Russian space industry, engaged, developed and inspired his innate visual sense. He studied photography and digital art in London at Thames Valley University, St Martins College and the London College of Printing and has worked as a professional photographer for various national magazines.
From documenting the emotional and psychological effect of travel to the reinterpretation of the portraiture and documentary genres, Broughton's photographic works journey beyond contrivance and pretension and instead contemplate spontaneity and evocation.
Broughton has recently celebrated the success of Foreland, the follow-up to the 2006 exhibition Transit, his debut solo show in Auckland.
