Independent Auckland gallery and colour laboratory Real Pictures was a seminal space for New Zealand’s photographic community. From 1979–1990 it exhibited leading photographers, provided support for fledgling practitioners, and was a community space for those dedicated to photographic art. For those represented in Imaging XX, the gallery played a transformative role in their practice.

Imaging XX showcases historic work by women photographers affiliated with Real Pictures: Sue Gee, Jenny Tomlin, Megan Jenkinson, Marie Shannon, and Deborah Smith. The exhibition explores the diversity and dynamism that emerged during this time period.
